No, NESN, That's Not How You Pronounce Maurice "Rocket" Richard's Name

Maurice Richard is one of ice hockey's most legendary and greatest players.

Red Sox Broadcasters Don Orsillo And Jerry Remy Cannot Figure Out How A…

NESN's Red Sox broadcast team of Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy show up often in these parts, usually due to their inability to hold themselves together due to some wacky fans in the stands.
