Hmmm... I'm not sure if I'm mature when it comes to being a Sox fan. Am I rationale? Yes. Do I believe in the curse? No. Do I hate all Yankee fans? Definitely not.
But, I drove up to Boston one Friday last fall--taking the day off of work--and 12 hours later, at about midnight (damn traffic) I got to Fenway Park and waited outside for 14 hours before they let me buy the ticket. I went home, took an hour nap, and went to the game.
I was at Game four, too, before it was rained out. I then drove home Monday, missing the game.
On Thursday of the following week, I took a train up to NY for game 7, taking Friday off again.
So, I'm definitely not an aficianado
, but perhaps an adult Red Sox fan. If that's possible.
I'm back. Sorta.
Do not boo Johnny.
