After starting in the Sports Information Office at Boston University in 1996, where as a student I helped others cover the exploits of future NHLers like Shawn Bates, Chris Drury, and Tom Poti at Walter Brown Arena, I was closing my NHL career watching another former Terrier, Mike Grier, now retired from the NHL (and like me, BU Class of 1997), put the Bruins through their paces as they prepared for the upcoming campaign at Agganis Arena.
It was a good place to finish my full time coverage of professional hockey.
On Monday, January 14th, I return to school -- literally -- as the Webmaster at Lawrence Academy in Groton, Massachusetts, and this is my last regular post for BostonBruins.com.
Same here. Good for Bish.
Kirk introduced him to me years ago at training camp. Seemed like a real good guy. When I was Admin here, he was always responsive to e-mails when we had questions about something. Just a real good down to earth guy.
Bish is one of the genuinely nicest people I've ever had the pleasure to meet. Big loss for the Bruins and fans, but working regular hours should be a huge plus for him personally. Best wishes to him and his family.
(He grew up across the river from me. Connecticut mafia and all...)
