Good Bye Hazel Mae
Fri Jun 27 19:10:20 EDT 2008
NESN management is smart enough to know that their profits do not depend
upon talent. The only person who might hurt them by leaving is Remy. Why
should they overpay for replaceable parts?
Hazel is great too look at and is reasonably skilled. But NESN will lose no
viewers and no money when she leaves.
