Being forced to listen to commercial radio while on hold. Being forced to listen to Perry Como or Mantovani while on hold.

The Boston Celtics are saying bah-humbug to the league Grinch responsible for scheduling the Celtics to play the New York Knicks in New York on Christmas Day. Kevin McHale pulled a fast one on his 2-year-old daughter and told her that Santa visits Boston first, then the rest of the world Dec. 25. "It's a disaster.
