"As a fan of the Boston Red Sox, I submit that the team is no more, and no less, worthy of my caring than they were five years ago, or thirty years ago. The winning has changed the labels applied to me, but the new labels are no more accurate than the old labels. – Mark Armour, My No-Longer Lovable Red Sox
Congratulations to the Red Sox. I’m very happy for MK, one of their long time fans. Through baseball and the Red Sox, I have gotten to know her in the past several years.
The Sahx are a great story, a cast of characters that include Bill James and Dice K. My connection with the team goes back to 1975. As a Giants fan, I “hated” the Reds. So when those two met in the World Series, I pulled for the Red Sox. We had a 13-inch black and white TV on a roller. My Mom let me take it from the living room to my room and watch the Series. Never forget laying on my bed and watching Fisk, then Little Joe.
Anyway, I’m happy today for my friend and Red Sox fans.
