News from NESN broke Wednesday night that the network had re-signed color commentator and fan favorite broadcaster Jerry Remy. Red Sox Nation reacted about as you would expect.
115 games per year? Yes, please.
Jerry Remy signs a multi-year extension with NESN that has him doing 115 games per year. Good news for @redsox fans.— Ian Browne (@IanMBrowne) January 19, 2017
The man himself hopped on Twitter to share his feelings about continuing to represent the Red Sox nearly for many nights during the summer.
One of Remy’s NESN partners jumped in right away to express his excitement.
A fitting chant was created.
Even a Yankees fan got in on the celebration
@NESN even though I'm a Yankee fan, he is one of my favorite broadcasters— Rich Francesconi (@RfranRich) January 19, 2017
Welcome back, RemDog. We’re all ready for 2017!
And now, onward to Spring Training.
