Sean McAdam ’81 – “Boston: America’s Best Sports Town”

Sports journalist Sean McAdam ’81 joins us to talk about his new book, Boston: America’s Best Sports Town, his multimedia career, and his current work at the year-old Boston Sports Journal website. The book, which came out this spring, provides Sean’s insights on each of Boston’s professional sports franchises, some of the area’s unique sports traditions (e.g. the Boston Marathon and the Beanpot hockey tournament), Boston Olympians, college sports, and more. Sean tells us how he picked the four legends for his Boston sports “Mount Rushmore,” including his reasons for selecting Bill Russell over Larry Bird to represent the Celtics.
