For thousands and thousands of Spanish-speaking members of Red Sox Nation, Juan Pedro ''J. P." Villaman was the voice, the man who screamed until he was hoarse and laughed easily as he told fans about David Ortiz's mammoth home runs, Manny Ramirez's adventures in left field, and the team's miraculous comebacks.
Uri Berenguer (L) said he considered broadcast partner J. P. Villaman to be his mentor. ‘‘In J. P.’s eyes, the Red Sox could do nothing wrong,’’ Berenguer said. The pair teamed up for a Red Sox game against the Atlanta Braves on May 20 at Fenway Park. (Globe Staff Photo / Essdras M. Suarez)

Very sad. I drive on I93 every year when I go up to visit my sister, and it is usually a challange to drive on it. Not used to all the hills and curves, and aggressive drivers...plus they drive on the shoulders during rush hour, which takes me by surprise when I'm trying to merge...
