You probably don’t know the name Eddie Doyle, but if you’ve ever seen ’80s TV show Cheers, you know his story to some extent: Doyle has been tending bar at Boston’s Bull & Finch Pub for 35 years. The Bull & Finch is the bar that inspired the show, and Doyle is now no longer a bartender: The Associated Press reports that Doyle received his walking papers, yet another victim of a slow (or dying, however you want to put it) economy.

Doyle is still listed on the bar’s website, though, so at least he’s got that going for him, which is nice.
