Shrinky Local Tabloid Now Slightly Less Shrinky

November 7, 2018

After months of neutron bombing its sports department (see coverage from our kissin’ cousins at One Daily Town), the Boston Herald has actually hired a sports columnist to fill the void in its Toy Department.

Tom Keegan joins Herald

Award-winning columnist latest addition to sports staff

Boston has a new voice for sports.

Tom Keegan, an award-winning columnist, editor and radio personality who has plied his trade in the Los Angeles, Chicago and New York markets, will join the Herald as sports columnist covering Boston’s championship-winning teams beginning Monday.

“Toughest teams on the planet, liveliest sportswriters and most colorful sports nuts in the country. Cool city,” Keegan said about Boston — to which he has family ties. “My trips to Fenway Park felt more like I was covering an event than a game. Wild intensity. Good times. Can’t wait to resume writing for the back page.”

 

Welcome to Boston, Tom.

Hope you don’t get folded, spindled, or mutilated by your Digital Fist – sorry, First – Media handlers.

Free the Bianca Wilfork 1!

Nice piece on Page One of Boston Globe Sports today about Patriots lineman Vince Wilfork and his comeback from a torn Achilles’ tendon.

The report by Shalise Manza Young focuses on all the help Wilfork’s wife Bianca gave him in his rehab efforts. But . . . it doesn’t have one picture of her, even though she’s the central figure in the story.

Really?

C’mon, you guy in the Globe toy department. Play fair.

P.S. The piece alongside the Wilfork story is about women becoming bigger players in fantasy football leagues. Go figure.
