NESN Dump of D&C has nothing NOTHING to do w recent events. TRULY.

Make no mistake. John Dennis, Gerry Callahan and Kirk Minihane are absolutely loving every bit of attention they are getting from Minihane’s Erin Andrews comments. Their bosses are as well. Either that, or management is afraid to take action against their highest-rated show. They keep adding on to it so that they can keep themselves in the news, and bring attention to themselves...

I’ve never helped put together a media guide for a extremely large and popular university before, but I imagine it takes quite a bit of time and effort to complete.
