Last month, legendary sportscaster Bob Lobel visited Bridgewell Boston Street Center. He toured through the employment training and day habilitation services while meeting many Bridgewell individuals and sports fans.

While touring the program, Bob was asked many questions like “How did you come up with the catch phrase panic button?” to “What’s your favorite food?” And of course, “How will the Pats do this year?” and “Who will win the World Series?”
