Grateful fans
Wyc Grousbeck indulged his inner Deadhead the other night. The Celts CEO invited Bob Weir and the rest of RatDog to Friday's Celtics game at the Garden. (RatDog played at the Orpheum Saturday.) Weir, the former guitarist of the Grateful Dead and good friend of onetime Celtic Bill Walton, happily accepted. Said RatDog's tour manager Matt Busch afterward: "The seats were spectacular, Wyc was a terrific host, and it was as great a night off as we've had in quite some time." Weir demonstrated his Celtic pride by donning a Kendrick Perkins jersey for his show's encore.
