Face of the Franchise

COULDN'T resist and had to post this picture of a 5-year-old Ben Cherington, shown at Fenway Park in 1979. As I wrote in my feature story in the New Hampshire Union Leader, Ben was engrossed by the game -- "especially the pitchers," said his mom -- and never lost interest. Pretty cool story now that Cherington is the 11th general manager in Red Sox history.

“Ben was just riveted,” said his mother, Gretchen, reflecting on their first family trip to Fenway. “I think every other 5-year-old wasn't paying attention, but he just watched what was going on. There was a focus and passion for the game way back then.”

If you asked my mom to email you a picture from my childhood, she would give you a picture of me at Funspots Roller Rink on Ft. Eddy Road. Fortunately I did not become the next Saturday Night Fever version of Travolta.....on wheels. Perhaps I lacked the "focus and passion" of young Ben Cherington.

Traditionally franchisers would not use franchise agents to offer operations, but times have different. You have very nicely described about it over here.

After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
from now on whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the
exact same comment. There has to be a means
you are able to remove me from that service?
Kudos!
