Globe staffers: Bob Ryan's son has died in Middle East
The huge Boston Globe contingent here in Phoenix has been hit hard with a devastating piece of news:
Several staffers said the son of long-time columnist Bob Ryan has died in Pakistan, where he was working for the Department of Homeland Security.
Details are sketchy at this time, but I have been told Ryan has left Arizona to fly home.
More information as it becomes available.
Here is a little more info from our friends at Boston Sports Media Watch.
