WILL McDONOUGH, 1935-2003: The world

WILL McDONOUGH, 1935-2003: The world lost one its foremost sportswriters on Friday when legendary Boston Globe sports columnist Will McDonough passed away unexpectedly at the age of 67. McDonough wrote for the Globe for more than 40 years and was one of only a handful of writers who had covered every Super Bowl. McDonough also once punched out a Patriots player, Raymond Clayborn.
After the death last year of Ted Williams, McDonough's passing marks another Boston sports legend who tragically never lived to see a Red Sox world championship. But after covering the Patriots since their establishment as a franchise, McDonough was on hand in New Orleans last February when the Patriots won their first-ever Super Bowl.
McDonough's final column for the Globe, about his longtime friend Bill Parcells, was published January 5.
