"We love ya, Cooz!"

On St Patrick's Day 1963, Bob Cousy rendered a tearful goodbye to the fans of Boston. On Bob Cousy Day during a twenty minute speech that was only suppose to last seven, Cousy became so emotional that he was forced to pause during his remarks. Through the silence, a fan yelled the now famous words, "We Love ya, Cooz!" There was not a dry eye to be found in Boston Garden certainly not with the "Houdini of the Hardwood". But after this "Boston Tear Party", Celtic fans sure didn't have much to cry about for a long time. Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!
