That was a fun game to watch as a Red Sox fan.
There are many, many, many people out there who are more dedicated Red Sox fans than I am. This season, I did not watch a single game until the fourth game of the ALCS. And even then I only caught the last few innings. (Actually, I went to bed before it was over.) Last night, while watching the pivotal Game 7, I didn’t start watching until the third inning, and then I took a 45 minute break between innings 4 and 7 to watch Lost.
And yet, I do love baseball, and there is no other team to which I owe any allegiance. Not like in football (the NFL kind) where I root for a half dozen teams, or soccer (football) where I follow a couple of nations during the World Cups (the Mundial).
The Red Sox are the only baseball team I care anything about. I attended a few Paw Sox games while I was in college, I own several Red Sox caps, and have been to a Red Sox game. But I’d like to say that, even from that fair-weather post, it was a great game to watch.
