Who

RLCI am Rob Crawford. During the campaign for president of Red Sox Nation, somehow I got the nickname, “Regular Rob,” and now, even those who used to call me “Crawdaddy” have adopted my new moniker. Guess I gotta just go with it.

Baseball and parenthood dominate my consciousness. To understand why, check out this article, entitled, “What I Love About Baseball,” and this article, entitled, “Birth of a Believer.”

I am a highly involved husband and parent of five children, all under the age of 12. A one-time middle school teacher and coach, my career is now focused on helping schools set and achieve high aspirations for effectiveness and impact. In October, 2007, I placed second in the election for President of Red Sox Nation, and Jerry Remy selected me to be Vice President.

I am pretty much the luckiest guy on the face of the earth.

  1. Yo Bro’

    I love coming to Crawdaddy Cove. You are a remarkable big broddah. Hopefully, it’s not too late for MORE of you to rub off on me.

  2. I LOVE your blog. I love the way it looks. I love the thoughtful commentary on life topics. I love your willingness to put yourself “out there” and take on life in big gulps. The world needs more Rob Crawfords.

    Rob, thank you! Thank you for the life lessons you give. Probably, it’s a common responsibility to share such a knowledges/idea with other people, but not many of us really do it. Sure, everyone have his own thought on life events, but it’s very useful to know others’ positions; it helps to fix yours.

    It’s little bit hard to read a party philosophic articles in English for me, but I read your blog without the thoughts about how to translate it. Otherway, I can read you thougths here, instead of the words. That’s grate!

    Thank you and other people who do what you do!

  5. happy to find the blog as I was looking for your e-mail. Robert Earl Keen will be in in Northampton in November…hmmmm

  6. Stage 5 — what might that be. Delusional. Like Shaughnasy’s column today saying regular season is a warmup for the playoffs — just like the patriots.

    Like believing we’re going to waltz into post season seven games up — and no fight from the big bad empire to the South.

    Loved the blog. Can’t pull up the song.

    Received CD’s but was gone for three days and only now catching up. Can’t wait to hear it.

    Go Sox.

  7. Hey Rob!
    Great blog…and song…and campaign platform! I’m rootin’ for ya.
    Cheers,
    Caroline

  10. Hey Rob,

    It’s been about ten years now since my Derby days and I still have not forgotten being in the classroom or on the basketball court with you. You’ve always remained a real inspiration. You have my vote. I just posted to my Red Sox Nation group composed of a thousand faithful Red Sox fans at Boston University. Hope all is well. Keep up the great work.

  11. Rob,
    Your blog and your comportment during the campaign were exemplary, but even more so was the gracious manner in which you approached it all. Love the blog and love that we are raising our kids the same…it must be something in the Taylor Crossway water…..
    Keep it up!

  12. Hey Rob –

    Congratulations on the Vice Presidency! My mom has been keeping me updated with all of the OSC mailings.

    I can’t think of a better person for the position (well, except maybe your Dad).

    Good Luck!

  15. To think that I knew someone as brilliant as you and dated your brother. Fantastically awesome blog. Great stories, wonderful parenting insight. Thank you. If you haven’t already, write a book on raising a Red Sox Fans. I owe many of my fenway memories to your family. I cherish them. Five kids?@!!@?

  16. Errrrr RoboCrawf,

  21. Catchy tune. Could be a classic. You sure are.
    Best to all of you Crawdaddies. It was good to hear your voice.

  22. Greetings~

    My name is Jordanna Preer-Gudermuth and I was a dear friend and classmate of Justin Walker. I knew his mom, Leslie, and Justin and I were very close during our high school years. I went by the nickname ‘Jordi’.

    I have been searching for him since before his role in Clueless to no avail. Should you have contact with him would you kindly pass along this message. I now have Multiple Sclerosis and I am just searching for friends and family that I have not had the opportunity to reach out to.

    Thank you, in advance, for your efforts.
    PS: note the zero in the email address*

    Sincerely,
    Mrs. Jordanna Preer-Gudermuth
