Oh, surprise, another blubbering Red Sox fan.
If Shilling was wearing another uniform right now, say, Devil Ray, you’d besmirch him too. Just like you besmirch every former player. Do I need to start naming names?
Boston fans are the worst in sportsdom.
Um… I think you mean Duke fans, right?
I’ve been a Sox fan since I was old enough to walk, and I would have to say (at least as far as the lifelong fans are concerned), that Sox fans are some of the more learned and baseball-savvy fans in baseball. Of course, since the Sox won in '04, all the bandwagon fans have certainly diluted the pool of knowledge, but the old legions are still around.
You go to any ballpark and I guarantee you that there will be no fewer than 1,000 beer-spilling, curse-word-hurling idiots proudly wearing their team’s emblem and making complete asses of themselves.
Oh and by the way, I still respect the hell out of Roger Clemens (who left because Dan Duquette was a complete douchebag), and harbor no ill will towards Wade Boggs, or any other ex-Sox players (except J.D. of course, that was just too much to take…).[/quote]
I agree with you whole heartedly (especially with your comment on BANDWAGON FANS) If you aren’t originally from the Northeast its hard to believe guys nowadays (Revere, Mass is my hometown)…
even with the Dan Duquette comment, but Roger and Wade hurt my heart worse than JD… JD was there for a stint… The others were what gave me hope every year, that this would be there year… Think about what happened till we got Pedro…
Stagnation, while Roger went on to win 2 Cy Youngs in the 3 years he was at Toronto and then jumped on the Yankees… Listen, I never said I don’t respect them, but damnit going to the Yankees is A MORTAL SIN.
Glad to have a true Sox fan in here with me.
