Not a good look for all time great and former Celtic Robert Parish in this weekend's Boston Globe. Apparently Parish has sold all his championship rings and is low on cash.

    complaining in the press is not going to get you any sympathy or find you the coaching job, even if that is "what you want to do."

    i want to be emperor of the world.
