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.

Here's a direct quote from one of my friends from Boston:

"Let me know where he's buried, so I can piss on his grave."

Of course, h'd have to stand in line behind Raymond Clayburn, Roger Clemens, Mo Vaughn and Lisa Olson.

McDonough trivia: Will was one of the panelists on the pilot for Sports Reporters, along with Mike La-puka, Dave Anderson and Mr. Tony.

If you're asking where the derogatory name came from, it's from a very, very bit on the Stern show (like from 1988) where Howard was "interviewing" Darryl Strawberry.

If you're asking why I dislike Lupica, the short answer (ha ha) is that he's a snug, obnoxious, self-important twit.

Lupica's appearances are the only thing that will get me to turn off Mr. Tony's radio show.

Back to Will, it has been announced that two Memorial Services will be held for Will on Tuesday. Both will be at the Fleet Center. An 18,000 seat arena for a reporter's memorial service.

I remember when Richie Ashburn died, there were humongous lines that stretched for miles outside the memorial service.

Come on you boys in green! I just got back from a vacation in Ireland, and the spirit there is unlike anything I've seen before. And they play passionate football.
