    That's probably Julie Donaldson's old job. They're using an occasional free-lancer now. They have two full-timers. The sports director is a solid, straight-laced guy. The second guy is a "cool" guy who cannot use the word "hockey." Instead, he calls it "ice capades." He calls every small athlete a "little motor scooter." Things like that. He's cool.

    Painfully unlikable sports department, that one is. Fran Charles might have been the last tolerable anchor they had.

    There's also incredible turnover at that place.

    If that's the second guy's attitude about hockey, what a terrible hire for WHDH.

    I suspect it's just him trying to be witty rather than dismissive of the sport -- a poor man's "Now for the night on frozen pond...". if you will.
