There’s a lot going on today, so I’m just going to have hit you with a few quicklinks today.
98.5 The SportsHub comes online at 1:00pm today with Felger and Massarotti. Their website is finally re-directing properly. This morning the station has been playing Patriots Super Bowl highlights.

Jerry Remy came to park last night, spoke with the media, and spent a half-inning the booth with Don Orsillo and Dennis Eckersley. He spoke about his recovery from cancer and revealed that he had been suffering from and treated for depression, triggered in part by not being able to do the job that he loved. Ian Browne has a great article on Remy, and Sean McAdam and Ben Collins report on the NESN broadcaster as well.
