If Heidi Watney can do it, so can Bobby Valentine

Rappelling Watney

From the archives of the Boston Fire Department comes this photo of Heidi Watney rapppeling down a 22-story building in downtown Boston this summer. Awesome as the photo is all by itself, it gains added relevancy when we read that Brian Cashman has challenged Bobby Valentine to rappel down a similarly storied building in Stamford.

...I'm sure there's a gag in there somewhere...but I'm too tired.

Point of clarification?

This might make me look bad, but who is Heidi Watney?

You mean, who was Heidi Watney?

Now that she's moved to LA, she's dead to us.

In any case, she was, until the end of September, the down-by-the-field reporter for NESN. A Google search will quickly answer any other questions.


You must be both new to Boston (ie: post-September) and/or new to U-Hub, since Adam has written about her many times over the past year (click on the "Heidi Watney" tab just below the picture for tagged articles). Either way, welcome!

That's the last nice thing anyone will say to you as a newbie, ever, so good luck... ;-)

new? hardly

Actually I've lived here for 30 years. I know she's been mentioned on UH before; I just don't watch NESN.

My Dad worked in the Landmark Square building when I was a kid. They didn't have rappelling Santa Clauses or baseball managers back in those days.
