[tweetmeme source=”elizabethev” only_single=false]I had my heart set on not falling for the Red Sox again this season. Last September’s unraveling just about did me in. All that chicken, beer, finger pointing and whining (especially the whining)? Over it.
As I drove home earlier this week, listening to reports of pitchers and their injured thumbs on 98.5 the Sports Hub, I was all but resigned that this year would be much of the same. Besides, who needs baseball when there’s still hockey?
And then this happened.
And just like that, I was smitten all over again. The passion, the rivalry, the devotion, the anticipation. Surely all that can survive a tough September, some questionable decision making and a few ridiculous press conferences.
Try as I might, it’s nearly impossible to give up on the team I love. Happy Opening Day, Red Sox Nation.
Also On Tap for Today:
- Looking forward to seeing a few of my Team Off Balance teammates tonight
- Soccer game (longest day ever)
- Getting ready for some out of town guests 🙂
Where do you stand with the Red Sox this season?
