Pledge allegiance to Red Sox Nation

A nice article by Bill Simmons about being a Red Sox fan in Boston.

The Red Sox dominate everything. You can’t walk 10 feet without seeing a Sox hat, can’t step into a bar without seeing baseball players on a TV, can’t have a conversation without the topic turning towards the team. The collective mood of the city ebbs and flows with the fortunes of the team, like an oversized college campus, everyone riding the same daily roller coaster. When the Yankees come to town, you can feel it. It’s like an invasion. The Yankees are coming.

This is one of the things I was trying to get across the other day.
