Dan Shaughnessy is a legendary sportswriter, author and a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. He’s also a really old friend of Christy's, someone she and her family stay with whenever they’re in Boston, which they did recently. This time, she also had the pleasure of sitting down with him for a Breakfast All Day A La Carte conversation about his lengthy and storied career. Dan talks about growing up a huge sports fan in small-town Groton, Mass., getting his start in sportswriting, and covering iconic teams for The Boston Globe like the Celtics in the ’80s and the Red Sox through their many heartaches and triumphs. After all, he is the author of “The Curse of the Bambino.” But Dan also loves movies, so we discuss his favorite baseball films and the ones that really get Boston right (including that tricky accent). This was so much fun, so please enjoy this on-location episode.
