My employer was a very good friend of Sherm's. I've heard some interesting stories of what went on behind the scenes in the locker room and with Red Sox employees in the 70's and 80's.
Fenway lost something when Sherm's voice went silent.

I agree with that, and not just because we were related. In truth, I'd met him maybe 4-5 times, he did not even attend my Bar Mitzvah!! But, I did get to go up to his area at Fenway around age 4 or 5, do not remember it.

He had a distinctive voice, and, I'm pretty sure every NESN Sox telecast begins with his voice welcoming people to Fenway Park.

You know the song "summertime", with the lyrics "It's summertime summertime, sumsum summertime..."? Sherm Feller wrote that (I'm not saying it took amazing creativity to write the song, but, it's at least catchy!) Go figure. He was a Boston area DJ as well, at some point in his life. Interesting dude.

I actually did know this fact.
Apparently Sherm used to constatntly get small (very small) royalty checks.

I wish I knew a little more about him. My Grandmother is the last link in the family to his family, and her memory was always poor at best, and now time and age are impacting her further.

I would say for the most part, I can listen to any broadcaster. I like the local guys as well as the national guys like Joe Buck and Tim McCarver. Now I'm sure plenty of people dislike those two guys, but I think they're great. I've been listening to McCarver since he was on Channel 9 and when the station was just called WOR. I also liked Bill White. He made The Scooter tolerable.
You seriously like McCarver?

Wow.

The real test is if someone likes Hawk Harrelson.

No worries! I've NEVER liked the Hawk! He made Fran Healy seem like Vin Scully!

Oh wait that's another thing we gave up to get Drew isn't it. (or maybe not :crossefingers: ) Who kidnapped Theo and replaced him with Dan Duquette?


I was in the stands for the second game....the whole game.

I think it is clear that we Red Sox fans have a complex. The first step is to admit you have a problem.

There is more VENOM here. Period. Anyone who does not admit this is in denyal.

I hate the Yankees Suck chant. I love the fights in the bleachers when someone wears a Yankees Shirt.

One thing about Yankee Stadium...you can always count on a fight or two, regardless of who they're playing.

2 years ago I went on a little baseball trip with my Dad, we hit both Chicago Stadiums, Miller Park, Old Busch and PNC Park. We were blown away by how nice everyone was at all of the Stadiums, well, except for that abomination on the South Side of Chicago. But, the rest, especially up in Milwaukee, had really great environments, very kid friendly...was nice to go to a game and not have to deal with drunken fools all game long.

I lived in the Bronx for 7 years. Whenever the Sox played the Yanks, I'd see all the patrons of the local bar boarding their bus with hoards of "Boston Sucks" tee shirts.

I'm now in Vermont, and the guy across the street from me mows his laws in a "Boston Sucks" shirt. Fans of the Yanks are no better than fans on the Sawks. The obsession runs both ways.

Disagree. Vehemently

I lived in The Bronx for 24 years, still go back 3-4x a year, and am a life-long Yankee fan, and own no Boston sucks gear, nor does any Yankee fan I know. I never would own any, either. My obsession is with the Yankees, not the Red Sox.

We're obnoxious, I'm sure, in a plethora of ways, but, we're not obsessed with Boston, sorry.

Disagree all you want.

I saw what I saw.

MrBrau,
You forgot to mention that your neighbor is fuckin' nuts! What kind of dickbag wears a Boston Sucks tee shirt to begin with? Anyone out there guilty of this wardrobe choice?
