Dogman and the Lowell Spinners

I'll take a break from real estate and registry stuff today to point you to a great profile in the Globe of Del Christman, better known as Dogman, an employee of the Lowell Spinners, the Class A (New York Penn League) affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.  Christman joined the Spinners back when they were born in Lowell in the late 1990s as a hot dog vendor - hence the name "Dogman."  His booming voice, his original menu labels (a "blood hound" was a hot dog with ketchup; an "Irish setter" was one with relish) and his antics in the stands were more entertaining than the game.  Christman is now the Spinners' clubhouse man and travels each spring to Florida for spring training.
