Boston Red Sox Icon Jerry Remy Is An Adorable Tap Dancer
What a week! Amidst the hottest winning streak The Red Sox had in years, beloved Sox broadcaster revealed that he was an accomplished tap dancer as a kid. You have to see this adorable photo!
Our Boston Sports Insider really came through for us today with an unbelievably cute photo of 'The RemDawg' when he was just a pup!
Remy actually treated TC and Jim Rice to a few steps of an old dance routine from back in the day and I have never seen Jim Ed laugh that hard in my life.
In all seriousness, Remy said that he parted ways with dancing as an early teen but gives credit to dancing lessons for giving him an edge in quick footwork as a ball player, both as a baserunner and defensively as a second basemen.
Now turning to another second basemen who happens to play on the team with the best record in The American League, The Boston Red Sox.
During their nine game tear through Tampa Bay, Baltimore and Minnesota, one player's high energy and intensity really shined through for me, and his name is Christian Arroyo.
Tom Caron has been a huge fan of his and not just recently.
He was selected 25th overall in the draft, a real blue chip prospect.
He's only 25 years old and now he's finally getting a chance to play.
He grinds out every single at bat and is really good defensively and has an excellent chance of being their everyday second baseman going forward.

It's The Red Sox against The White Sox tonight at Fenway Park, (unless Mother Nature has anything to say about it) and hopefully 'My Guy' Arroyo will continue to compete and 'move the team forward' to borrow a phrase from our Boston Sports Insider.
