Sometimes you wanna go
where everybody files for unemployment.
Eddie Doyle was the guy who really did know everybody’s name, at least when he started working at the tavern that inspired the television show "Cheers."You don't suppose the fact that Doyle is "around 66" years old had anything to do with his layoff, do you?
To the tens of thousands of tourists that later passed through, Doyle remained behind the bar to offer a smile, a beer and tips about where to find the Boston that wasn’t shown on TV.
Now Doyle is out of a job, laid off from "Cheers" after 35 years.
The bar’s owner has said a tough economy and sagging business forced the move, which was one of several layoffs.
