Gillis died a few years back. Besides doing the TV sports on Channel 5, he also did the Saturday candlepin bowling show too, However, I always liked Bill O'Connell who had been around it seemed forever and a day. In 1980, he moved from weekend sportscaster on Channel 5 to the Monday- through-Friday guy at Chan- nel 7. He had a long career on both radio and TV and worked at Channels 5, 7 and 56 before returning to his radio roots where he hosted a jazz show late at night on WPLM 99.1.

Former Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez has made a verbal agreement (I wonder in what language?) to sign with the EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Professional Base- ball League in Taiwan. His deadline was March 7 th if a Major League team didn't sign him up. He turns 41 years old on May 30 th and hasn't played in the Majors since April 2011 when he got suspended for testing positive a second time for a PED. Rather than serving tired. He did sign with Oak- land last year, but never got beyond Triple A. He then played in the Dominican Winter League but it seemed he was unwanted in the Majors. He does have 555 homers and probably thinks he is Hall of Fame material. If I were a voter for Hall status, I would vote no on Manny. Just say it is Sal being Sal. Fastball Pitching and Fast Car Driving? Boston Red Sox have a hotshot pitching prospect in 23-year-old Drake Britton. He is down in Ft. Myers at his first big league camp and got himself ar- rested on March 2 "d just be- fore dawn on misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, property damages and an OUI according to the Lee County Sheriff's Office. The arrest report says he was in his Chevy Silverado driving through the Town of Estero and clocked at 111 mph in a 45 mph zone. After a short police chase, he came to a stop. When asked by the deputy sheriff for his license, he handed over his debit card. He was taken to jail. Three days later, the Red Sox optioned him to the Double A Portland Seadogs. Last season he finished 4-7 with a 3.72 ERA in 16 starts striking out 76 in 84,2 innings. Put this story in the striking out department.

DiGangi, Esquire, First Justice of said Court at Cambridge, this 25th day of February 2013. Tara E. DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run dats: 3/15/13 He virtually grew up in an NHL locker room. He played for one of the most respected college programs in the coun- try. He scored the winning goal in overtime in one of the most important college tournaments. And yes, he finally became a Bruin --just like his father. But all stories do not have fairytale outcomes and the saga of Chris Bourque, the son of Bruins Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque, is one of those. Chris Bourque grew up in the Boston suburbs and graduated from Cushing Academy where he was named New England Prep School MVP in 2004. From there it was on to Boston Uni- versity for additional coach- ing under veteran mentor Jack Parker, known for run- ning one of the best college programs in the country. Although he played in 35 games in the single season he played at BU, he will al- ways be remembered for one goal. It was the one that spelled victory in the 2005 Beanpot championship game for the Terriers. Northeastern and BU were tied at 2-2 at the end of regu- lation in the 53  Beanpot title game. Play had gone back and forth in the overtime session for over 14 minutes when Bourque, a 19-year-old fresh- man at the time, backhanded a rebound shot into the net to give BU the win. "It was everything I thought it would be," said Chris, a for- ward who would wind up with 10 goals and 13 assists over the course of the season. The place was rocking, the fans were great and we won. It was an unbelievable experience." The following season found Bourque, who had been drafted 33 rd overall in the 2004 NHL draft by the Washington Capitals, play- ing briefly for the Portland Pirates before shifting over to" the Hershey Bears -- where he would be a mainstay for several seasons. He would play four NHL games for Washington during the 2007-2008 campaign, a brief interlude while playing 69 more for Hershey. Early in the 2008-2009 season he was claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh and proceeded to play 20 games for the Penguins, while also seeing action in 49 matchups with Hershey. There followed a year over- seas and then another year with Hershey in 2011-2012 -- a year he led the AHL in scoring with a career high 93 points in 73 games. In truth, a pattern seemed to have developed. Every time that Bourque essentially spent close to a full season in Hershey he was a goal scorer (five 20 plus goal seasons) and point producer. But when he stepped up to the big time things stalled out. And that in a nutshell is what happened on Causeway Street. After being acquired in a trade back in May, he played full-time in Providence ear- lier this season because of the NHL lockout. There he saw action in 32 games where he amassed eight goals and 20 assists. Called up to the abbreviated training camp in January, Bourque was elated. "It was a dream come true when I got traded here. I grew up want- ing to be a Bruin and it seems pretty close to becoming a reality." Indeed, in the Bruins lone exhibition game, a 7-5 loss to Providence at the Garden, he stood out by scoring a goal and adding two assists. "It was great," said Bourque at the time. "It's something that I've always dreamed of -- putting on that Bruins sweater and skating on Garden ice. It felt great t finally do it." __ " But then the regular sea- son began. And, and ... Well, let's just say it was a bit of a step down. By the time GM Peter Chiarelli made the decision to place him on waivers in early March, Bourque had played in 18 con- tests for the B's, scoring just one goal to go with three assists recorded over that span. In his 53 career NHL games, he was 2-6-8. Any NHL team could have claimed him off waivers but none did. He reported to Provi- dence the next day. But he went down with a note of encouragement from the man behind the bench -- Bruins head coach Claude Julien. "It doesn't mean his time here is over," said Julien in a press conference. "He knows that it took a little bit of time to find his game. It was coming around a little bit. He knows that his last game wasn't his best either." Julien took note of the way Bourque had played in Provi- dence during the lockout. "When you look at tll w-ay he played in Providence, hers certainly a guy you can't count out of your lineup here. Right now, it could just be a bump along the way. If we needed a guy to be called up, I would have no issues see- ing him back here." With that kind of positive sendoff, one might expect that Bourque will rejoin the B's before the season ends. He could but the truth is that Bourque, now 27, is on the north side of starting an NHL career. There are a number of promising players who are younger. In reality he is a fringe players caught in a no man's land -- a bit too good for the AHL but not quite good enough for the NHL. He won't be an embarrassment in the big time -- indeed there could be isolated moments that are memorable But overall, the record says that he's not quite good enough. And that, plus the reality that there are probably fewer days remaining in his pro career than those already experienced, is not an equation that is full of promise.
