In the eight months that this blog has existed, most Maroon Musket readers have become familiar with Bob McGovern. About a year ago, he and I started to kick around the idea of starting a blog dedicated to UMass Football. At the time, our biggest concern was whether we would be able to find the time to contribute enough material to make the blog successful. For lack of a better term, we didn’t want to half-ass this thing.
There is no doubt in my mind that Bob has been more committed to this project than I have been. (I’m just happy to be giving more than Mike Marzelli. Where the hell has that guy been?) Not only the quantity, but the quality of Bob’s work on this site has been nothing short of excellent.
The most amazing part about Bob’s posts in the last eight months is that they were written while he prepared for and took the Bar exam. I will probably never understand how he found a way to manage his time so well. Today Bob found out some awesome news. He passed the exam. I hope everybody can join me in congratulating Robert P. McGovern, Jr., Esquire.
