Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge may be the biggest Chipotle fan around. And he’s not about to let an E. Coli outbreak at some of their stores scare him away.

Ainge joined Toucher and Rich on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston Thursday. One of the first things to come up was Ainge’s taste for the burrito chain.

“The guys at the office refer to me as the ‘Jared of Chipotle,'” Ainge quipped, referring to Jared Fogle, the Subway spokesperson.

Ainge has been known to stop by the Chipotle in Waltham, Mass. nearby the team’s practice facility on a regular basis.

“It’s even better now; the lines are short!” Ainge said about the E. Coli problems.

“I’m there! I’ll eat there again today — I’m not worried about it! Those are my people. Those are my friends at Chipotle.”

Let’s just hope Ainge avoids the same fate as Jared — minus the endorsement deal and spokesperson part.
