I'm sure by now, you have heard the story that Jared Remy has been charged with the fatal stabbing of his girlfriend. Most of the headlines that I have read today have Jerry Remy's name in the headline itself.

Is it just because he is the color commentator of the Boston Red Sox? Of course it is, but it is FAIR to Jerry Remy that his name is all over the news? His son is a grown man, and if his dad wasn't on our TV every night would we pay anywhere near as much attention to the story?

Maybe we still aren't, but it seems that Jerry Remy is paying a steep price for being Dad. I guess its a sad situation no matter how you look at it.
