Old-School Red Sox Fans Versus New
Okay, give them a little credit for taste. Welcome to the party. Congratulations on knowing Youkilis, and not just Ortiz and Manny.
But there's a conundrum: how can you tell the difference between old school Red Sox fans and new?
As of this writing, the Red Sox are 63-40, 7-3 in their last 10, best record in baseball, and 8 games up on the second-place Yankee$. Their 8-game lead is by far the biggest division lead in baseball.
Here's how you tell the difference.
The new-school fans say, "All right! We're eight games up on the Yankees!"
The old-school fans say, "Oh, man. We're only eight games up on the Yankees..."
(Special thanks to Liz Blake for being a good listener while I figured this out last night.)
