I’m kind of a Mets fan too. After living in Boston my husband and I lived in Manhattan and we both hated the Yankess soooo we’d go to Mets games:)
That was 78-80 so no danger of a World Series between them!
My son,born and raised in the Boston area,has been working in NYC for 20 years.
During the ALCS in 2004 I asked him how he kept his joy in check.
He told everyone he was a big Mets fan-—as you did.
See? It works!
There is no ball park better (or stranger) than Fenway.
One of the things on my bucket list is to get back up for a few games in Fenway..it’s been over a decade...I want to sit atop the Green Monster, and also in the rooftop seats..
inferiority complex is inferior? Check back when they reach 12 championships, until then.. go back to the swirling toilet sorry ass excuse for a crappy playground called Fenway and sing songs about the touching underage Kennedys..
I guess I shouldn't mention that my team has a 13 game winning streak.
My father-in-law used to run a summer Y-camp for disadvantaged kids outside of Worcester. Ted Williams and another Red Sox player (Johnny Pesky? I forget.) dropped in unanounced one day, and basically the same story. Spent the whole afternoon with the kids, no reporters, no publicity, just spending time with young fans.
BTW, I grew up in Queens, when everyone was a Dodgers fan, even after the move to LA. I was a Yankees fan because I was a front runner. I always hated the Mets and Met fans, except maybe 1969 and 1973. The Red Sox “grew” on me after I moved up here.
I was commissioned after college, in 1968, and spent 4 years overseas..and thus I missed what, for NY sports fans was the greatest year ever..1969....the Mets, Jets, and Knicks..
“c) Fire Dan Shaughnessy!”
No,no,no,no no !
have fun in the playoffs.. should be a good ride with teams like KC, Tribe, Baltimore and the Rangers in the mix.
Ortiz is unreal...I wish he'd lost the 30 pounds a few years ago..
The AL wildcard race should be very exciting...THREE teams from the AL East could make the playoffs..
The thing I remember about Ted Williams is how nasty he was to the Boston fans.
You were lucky.
barking is nothing. In one game Jeter, running between second and third, shouted “mine” as he ran behind the short stop,the short stop stopped backing up for the pop up, the left fielder heard “mine” and stopped thinking the short stop had called it. The ball bounced on the ground about 10 feet behind the short stop and about 10 feet in front of the left fielder. Caught on film, it was hilarious.
They are the 4th hottest :-)
It will potentially be very interesting if the Rangers play Boston at Fenway now that they have Manny on their team.
Good thought...however, the optics of replacing Cruz with Manny are gonna hurt...LOL
LOL, I remember that now! Can't remember if I saw that game live, or saw highlights. Thanks for the reminder...
Those damn Yankees!
Wow... incredible story!
As usual, Jon Lester had "difficulty" during the 1st inning. Kansas City quickly got a run on the scoreboard. Then Lester loaded the bases. In come two more runs... KC leads the Sox 3-0.
It took Lester 41 pitches to finally get out of the first inning.
Hardly the "ace" we need heading late into the season...
Super slumper Mike Napoli hit into a double play to end the game. Red Sox lose to the Royals 5-1.
Oh well... maybe tonight we'll have better luck with Peavy on the mound.
Good for the Red Sox.
Beats bottom of the barrel last year! ;)
Santana's pitching for us and he's on a streak lately. Should be a good series.
I'm watching the MLB highlite show this morning..and they're talking about how great Carl Crawford is playing..and I want to go bang my head against the wall..
Brought a tear to my eye and a wee lump in my throat:)
What a GREAT story!
The Red Sox should be renamed the Red Soxed Step Child. Compare the banners with the Yanks since they traded Ruth and you’ll see what I mean. :-}
Though in all honesty I do think Ted Williams was the second greatest hitter to ever play the game. Of course a Yankee was the first. And Pujols is nipping at Ted’s heels.
My pleasure....had Williams played in the old, original Yankee Stadium, with the field level 296 ft right field porch..he’d have hit 750 HRs..and if he hadn’t missed 4 years for WW II and Korea..he might have hit 1,000 HR..just take his stats and pro-rate them
Peavy isn't very sharp tonight... :-(
6-3 Red Sox!!!
6-3 Red Sox!!!
9-6 Royals... 3-0 Rays over Dodgers in the second.
The Rays get no respect....Can’t wait until the Rays take the division lead. Again....
That was a tough loss yesterday..you should hear sports radio in Tampa..
My Indians imploded against the Tigers this week, dropping four straight at home. But that’s OK, since football is starting up again. I’ve got the Browns, Buckeyes, and local HS football to follow.
As a Yankee fan, I can’t agree with you more.
GO PIRATES...woot woot
Yup.... I am in Tampa....
#IBelieve! My theory on last night’s loss to the Rockies...forget that whole altitude thing...no it was just a fake out to the MLB. A way to his semof their awesomeness for the playoff’s n’@!
As a Red Sox fan, I(we) have always respected Jeter, Cano, Rivera, Mussina, Pettit, etc.
Even when Clemmons wore pinstripes, he was respected still in Boston.
The only individual players Red Sox fans hate are/were Arod and Johnny Damon. Arod because of before mentioned comments. Damon, because he said: “I will never where pinstripes.”
The Yankees are in trouble because they are now saddled with too many old players with big contracts. They need to clean house and start from fresh.
How about them Royals? They took 3 out of 4 from the Sox.
Perhaps the fat lady has been on a bit of a sore throat...
Happily, I think you may be correct. I give the Yanks an even chance of capturing a wildcard berth. Basically they need to finish 14-8.
