Bob Cousy gets Presidential Medal of Freedom

Recommended Posts

Cousy, 91, got it today. Bill Russell already has his and the only other Boston athlete to get one was Ted Williams. For a good book on his life and relationship with Russell I will recommend this one:      https://journalstar.com/entertainment/books/review-cousy-the-star-of-celtics-last-pass/article_645cedb9-e4b8-5192-8f68-2f296f6abde7.html

Just caught the Cooz in the1994 Omaha -product Nick Nolte classic "Blue Chip" which I hadn't seen in 25 years. I forgot so many basketball icons were in this movie about the cheating in NCAA basketball back then. (Ironically, Pitino, Boeheim, and Tarkanian all played themselves- also Larry Bird, Penny Hardaway , and a slim Shaq). Thankfully Cousy's medal wasn't based upon his acting proficiency.
