It’s not a big secret that I’m not the biggest sports fan. However, I’ve lived in the northeast for a good portion of my life and in the Boston area since 1977. If you live around here you can’t help but absorb all that goes on with all of the New England teams as sports permeates everything.

When I heard the news of the passing of Jerry Remy, I got the catch in my throat you get when you hear the saddest of news.

He’s part of Boston sports history and I’m really hoping he gets memorialized in a tangible way.
