As the hardreading staff previously noted, last week Herald columnist Margery Eagan went sour on NESN broadcaster Jerry Remy’s return to the booth, and, in an interview on WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan show, Pres. Red Sox Nation returned the flavor, ripping Eagan’s column without naming her. (Neither, oddly, did the Herald in reporting the Remy interview.)
Today the Boston Strong Girl is back in the ring, counterpunching with this piece.
Put anger aside, do what’s right, Jerry Remy
They tell me I ticked off Jerry Remy.
Last week I wrote a column asking why Jerry and Phoebe Remy would seek custody of their granddaughter Arianna. Their son is in jail, accused of stabbing Arianna’s mother to death. Remy’s other two children also have a history of arrests for violent attacks.
Questioning his ability to be Arianna’s grandparent made Jerry Remy mad. He went on WEEI with Herald columnist Gerry Callahan and called what I wrote “disgusting.”
Well, I may disgust him again today for asking why he won’t do the right thing by Red Sox Nation and step aside at NESN.
(Fun fact to know and tell: Eagan went to high school in Fall River with Phoebe Remy.)
Eagan concludes with this: “[E]verywhere you look along the long, ugly road that put Jared [in jail], you see Jerry and Phoebe Remy, too. There just can’t be a RemDawg anymore.”
Okay. You’re on deck, BlemDawg.
