MALE, Andersonville TN,pop. 1400, about the size of the apartment house grouping in Bensonhurst

About Me: I began watching the Celtics shortly after I moved to Boston in the early 50s. Grew up playing a little playground BB in Brooklyn, but my dream of playing down low didn't fit well with a 5'5" frame. The games that are national I tape. Living in a small Tennessee town everything here is Big Orange. The sniping back and forth bores me, especially when I know there are guys who really understand the game. I miss Slippery Sam, whose comments came from years of close contac5 with NBA and the Cs.
