This isn't going to sit well with the folks over at TedsArmy.com, but we can blame the Celtics, Bill Russell, and Red Auerbach for inspiring Joe Torre and turning him into the manager that he was.
Of course, the manager that he was meant the Yankees won a lot of championships… so the Red Sox fan in me is conflicted. I hate the Yankees. And I hate anything that makes the Yankees good. But the Celtics helped make the Yankees good because they shaped Torre. So who do I hate now? And who do I love? I'm so confused… I'M TRAPPED IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION!!!
