Boston Globe columnist Will McDonough dies By Associated Press, 1/10/03
BOSTON -- Will McDonough, a well-known sports columnist who worked for The Boston Globe for more than 40 years, has died. He was 67.
McDonough died late Thursday at his home in Hingham while watching ESPN's "SportsCenter," said Don Skwar, the Globe's sports editor.
Skwar said the cause of death had not yet been determined, although McDonough had heart problems in recent years.
McDonough, who retired from the newspaper two years ago, was best known for his NFL coverage. He wrote about the NFL for more than 30 years and had covered every Super Bowl since the championship game began nearly four decades ago.
After his retirement, McDonough wrote a weekly sports column for the Globe. He also did work for CBS and NBC and had continued to provide TV sports commentary in recent years.
His son, Sean McDonough, is a national sports commentator and play-by-play announcer.

At least it wasn't a Stuart Scott Sportscenter that he was watching. Surreal thing will be when the Bill Parcells show is broadcast, as it was taped before Will's death, thus Will will be contributing on the air even after his death.

I'm fine with this because of the field goal element - I do believe if you've given up a touchdown that your defense, and therefore your team, lost, but a field goal attempt can rely on too many lucky breaks for it to really be the deciding factor.
