Happy Birthday Bob!

What a great podcast, wish it kept going! I’ve been reading Bob Ryan since I was 6, my dad was a big celtics guy, and I wanted to be like him, I learned all about my local teams, and always felt at home reading your columns Bob. You ever hear a song and develop a picture in your minds eye of the singer? Only to realize they look nothing like you imagined? I did something similar with Bob, I heard his voice as I read, and the only time this ever happened in my whole life, his voice matched what I imagined! Wish I could shake your hand and thank you in person Bob, you have been a part of my life for over 40 years, I feel like I know you! Happy Birthday my friend, great career, hope it goes another 75 years. ♥️

Being an all-time “HOMER” doesn’t get better than this!

I was bored and a little cranky Christmas night so I just randomly typed “BOSTON” in the search box and in a matter of seconds, my Christmas was saved. Cranky turned to Jolly and Boredom turned to fascination as I listened to the voice of my all time favorite Boston Athlete. The unmistakable voice of that “Hick from French Lick” who brought back so many memories and feelings which seriously saved my Holliday. Thank Bob Ryan! You were my favorite columnist for years and you’ll always have a fan in me. Thx for this amazing Podcast!!
