Lynch's gift creates another new opportunity for BC
I occasionally whine about our fanbase and bemoan that we are lacking in big sports boosters. But I don't mind that we don't have our own version of T. Boone Pickens as long as we have guys like Peter Lynch. For those who didn't see it, Lynch just gifted BC $20 million to start a new "academy" aimed at teaching leadership to young educators moving onto jobs in the Boston area.
When I give my measly amount to BC each year, I never designate how I want it spent. I figure it is the Board's job to decide that. If I had Lynch's money I would probably give more specific demands on how it should be spent. I just hope that I would spend it in the right way. Maybe instead of getting the football team a private jet, I could just ask Lynch what he would do.
