Being A Boston Sports Fan
Being a Boston sports fan means a lot of things. First and foremost, it means unwavering support for the home teams. It means cheering for them when they’re winning, and it means letting them know about it when they’re losing. It means being able to handle heartbreak, and put your chin up as you say, “Wait til next year”.
Being a Boston sports fan used to mean rooting for perennial also-rans. For the past four years though, it has meant rooting for Champions. With the Patriots winning three out of four Superbowls, and the Red Sox winning their first World Series in 86 years, it is a good time to be a Boston sports fan.
Being a Boston sports fan automatically means a dislike for New York teams that borders on and often surpasses hatred. While its the Yankees that are usually the recipients of our hatred, the other New York teams get no slack.
Being a Boston sports fan, means that you’re a Boston sports fan for life. Being a Boston sports fan, means that you’re Diehard.
