Well, we won’t have Don

Well, we won’t have Don Skwar to kick around anymore. He is leaving his position as Sports editor of the Boston Globe to become a Senior News Editor at ESPN.

Random Quote

This is the ultimate dilemma. Of course fans want the Red Sox to win the World Series, but the dilemma is be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And if the Red Sox played the Cubs in the World Series, one of those two franchises will be permanently and forever altered. One of them will never be the same. So remember, while winning is the ultimate goal. If you’re a Sox fan or a Cubs fan, it carries a steep price tag. Life will never be the same.
