These generalizations over fans go a bit far sometimes; afterall, all true fans are fans of the game. I respect anyone who goes out and vigorously supports their home team. Even if they are Boston fans.
PS: I was lying about the Boston fans. They are awefull fans, violent; always starting fights at Yanks-Sox games at Fenway. The organization has a history of racism, as with all other Boston teams (and unfortunately, historically with the fans as well). That black eye is large in my book. Not to say that all of baseball hasn't struggled with racism in the past century, but Boston had always been a bit more aggressively hatefull. The way they treated Clemens was a travesty. You don't disparage publicly the best pitcher your franchise has ever known. Clemens has no reason to like the Red Sox, and anyone who says he owes them loyalty or he should like them is confused about the facts. The Red Sox organization turned their backs on Clemens; and the fans followed suit after he joined the Yankees.
Take a look at how the Yankees have treated Darryl Strawberry to get a feeling for how loyal the Yankee organization is. We kept him around, and offered him jobs so he could be in baseball still. Unfortunately he could never get his problems under controll. But the Yankees STILL haven't left him. And he had some serious issues to work out, but one of them wasn't being thrown out by his baseball team.
The knowledge the Sox will never win a championship again makes me sleep peacefully at night. I can't beleive I have to move to BOSTON IN SEPTEMBER! OH NO!
