UPDATE (08/05/09): According to his son, Jerry is now cancer-free and feeling better! There’s no timetable for his return, though…
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the status of Jerry Remy, but it appears he is very much alive and well as he continues to recover from the effects of lung cancer surgery. He posts updates nearly every day on his Twitter account (Follow Sports of Boston on Twitter!), and on Monday he posted an audio message for his fans.
Listen Here: Jerry Remy’s audio tweet
“Hi, this is Jerry. I just want to thank everybody for the overwhelming support I’ve got from you over the last couple of weeks. I’ve got a much larger family than I ever anticipated. Hope to be in the booth very soon.”
Personally, I think he sounds great, and I can’t wait until he returns to the booth with Don Orsillo. Dennis Eckersley, Dave Roberts, and others are OK, but no one has shown they can replace the Rem Dawg.
