BOSTON Like many Americans, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers was on pins and needles as the votes were being tabulated in last night's presidential election between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts.
Several news outlets declared Obama the winner after he surpassed the necessary 270 electoral college votes needed.
"That was a good evening last night if you're a supporter of the president, which I am," Rivers said. "So that was a lot of fun."
But with the election expected to be a nail-biter between President Obama and Mitt Romney, Rivers tried his best to take his mind off the election.
No such luck.
"Went to a movie, and couldn't take it anymore," Rivers said. "I was getting texts from people. They were telling me what was going on. I didn't trust that. I was turning into Karl Rove. It was unbelievable."
Rivers went to see Argo, but admitted he didn't see it to the end.
"I got a text in the middle of it that he won, so I left," Rivers said. "But it was terrific. So I have to go pay again which if you know me, really pisses me off, have to pay twice."
And yes, Rivers knows how the movie will end.
"But it's like Titanic," Rivers said. "Yeah, I know ending of that too. It's still a good movie."
