Remembering Red

The Celtics season-opener promises to be bitter-sweet, as Boston remembers Red Auerbach, a former Celtics coach who worked with the team for over 50 years. Auerbach died at 89 years old last Saturday.

The Celtics will dedicate this season in Auerbach's memory tonight, marking the culmination of "a day in memory of Auerbach." The celebration in Auerbach's memory started this morning at City Hall Plaza.

Auerbach was buried yesterday in Falls Church, Va.
