About Red's Army

Red’s Army is THE voice of Celtics fans. We’ve been dropping knowledge and cracking jokes since 2006. Yes, we started this blog when the team was really bad.

Chuck McKenney

Disciple of Larry Bird. Believe the NBA peaked in the 80s. Played a little basketball at Emerson College in the 90s. If you find an impulsive and irrational take on this site, there’s a high probability it belongs to me. Twitter: @RedsArmy_Chuck

Graduated from Boston University, which I attended obviously because the Celtics play in Boston. Was at the old Garden for Bill Russell’s final home game and Larry Bird’s first. Once lost $30 playing poker with Jo Jo White. All-time favorite player: Don Chaney. And no, the Celtics have not retired too many numbers. Twitter: @MikeDynon

Ben Mark

Ben has spent the past three years contributing to Red’s Army, primarily with his weekly morning Dump (currently on Thursday’s). He just missed the glory days of the 80s Celtics, so his formative years were spent going to the last years of the Garden and early years in the Fleet Center cheering on Dino Radja, David Wesley, and Greg Minor. He has vivid memories as a 9-year-old of being in the house when Acie Earl scored 40 points on the Celtics as a member of the Raptors and wondering whether anything in the world still made sense. His favorite Celtic of all time is Paul Pierce.
