Billy Donovan's Secret Sorrow

Postby cubsfan2123 » Wed Jun 26, 2013 11:14 am

I am sure this was posted on here when the story first came out, but that was 2 1/2 years ago and I had never read it or really knew about it, so I thought I would post it.

Thanks for passing it along. It's old news, but a good reminder of what is truly important; and it ain't sports....

The few times I've talked personally to Billy be is pretty stiff and business-like. The exact opposite of someone who is very warm like Zooker or Adazzio...nor someone who keeps you laughing like Joker. But he is no-nonsense, respectful, and not a bad guy. I like him...but he's different.

I have only spoken to Billy once but he was very friendly. Great guy who didn't think twice about talking with me.You can definitely tell he is not much for small talk though.

Had an opportunity to spend a few minutes with him when he Lee Humphrey and Chris Richard came to the Capitol for the legislature's recognition of the National Championship. I didn't find him stiff or standoffish or anything like that. He was more curious about the legislative process, and how things worked at the Capitol, than anything else.

I agree..he's just businesslike.
