« Eerie | Main | Sackapalooza: Patriots take messy slugfest from Broncos on Monday Night Football »

Thank you. Your posts always resonate with me.

This team has the right to return to Boston with their heads held high. They could have blamed it on the injuries and gone home early--indeed, my friend and I were on the phone worried about Beckett, Papi, or Papelbon risking permanent injury. But they played their hearts out. As fans, we can't ask for more than that.

Pretty sad. I absolutely hate how abrupt everything ends when the team doesn't go all the way. It just doesn't seem right. I think a "failed" season like this would be a lot easier to take (at least for me) if they had some kind of "day of celebration" at Fenway. I know this sounds ridiculous, but I'd enjoy it. Just have the players come out, let the public show their appreciation for them. Maybe show some videoclip highlights of the season set to stirring music.

I know that's kind of silly, but at least it would bring some closure.


GREAT season! This season was all a fan could ask for, drama (Manny, Game 5), comebacks (Coco), great stories (Lester, Bay, Dustin, etc). If sports is entertainment, then the Red Sox fans certainly got their monies worth this year. Nice season, thank you Red Sox--See you in the Spring!


now we know how Yankee fans feel when they lose. WE love them. WE know we gave our all. WE know we can hold our heads up high. WE know we'll be back. but we're not cute anymore. The Rays are cute. Fuck em.
