Putting Sports into Perspective

Sometimes it’s hard for us as Boston sports fans to notice anything else that goes on in our area or the world besides Boston sports. We think that the worst thing that could happen to us was the Patriots losing the Super Bowl or the Red Sox failing in the 2003 ALCS.

We’re lucky to think this way, but sometimes we take what we have for granted. Glen Ordway, host of WEEI’s The Big Show, has taken a personal leave of absence from the station while he devotes his time and energy to a family emergency. He spent some time yesterday to keep WEEI listeners posted on his current situation.

Yesterday, he said that his wife had given birth to a baby girl (last Thursday) but both are struggling to survive. The pregnancy had major problems at the very end, threatening the life of both his wife and new baby. His wife may have suffered some internal injuries as a result.

We here at Sports of Boston wish the Big O and his family only the best in this time of crisis, and that his wife, Sarah, and his baby, Mia Grace, have a speedy recovery.

  1. It’s so true Kase, we’re one of the most blessed cities in sports right now, even with a Super Bowl loss. Some cities hope their team post a winning record, let alone making the playoffs. There are much more important things.
