Is Boston.com The Jewel In The Globe’s Crown?

This article is more than 10 years old.

There’s a clip on YouTube with two comedians promoting a show in Boston. In it, Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal joke about going in halfsies on the Boston Globe — for just $400.

“None of the debts,” Mirman says nonchalantly. “None of that stuff, just the name, some of the equipment, maybe the building.”

“Maybe the dot.com,” Schaal adds, “we could buy that domain.”

The Boston Globe up for sale may lend itself to comic relief. Some people, though, might be dead serious about buying Boston.com.

This program aired on July 1, 2009. The audio for this program is not available.
