Proud Charter Member of the Original Sick

The following anecdote says all anyone needs to know about Boston's National Hockey League franchise. It's why NESN will be a lonely place to work between October 1 and March 31.

A young editor of my acquaintance is moving to a new job at his publishing firm. He'll be in sales. Aside from the obvious financial motive, this struck me as an unusual career move, and I said so.

"Oh, no," he responded, "I was a communications major in college. I've worked in sales. My last sales job, I worked for the Bruins. If you can sell Bruins season tickets, you can sell ANYTHING!"
