Re: Greater Fenway Park
I like to talk, so I had the chance to talk to lots of people wearing Red Sox attire yesterday (I'd only call about a third of them actual fans), and they all said things like "I have family in Boston", or "I remember Spike Owen", or some such gabbledygook.
I didn't cuss at them (I mean, I wasn't any more foul mouthed than I already am), but I would always end up preaching the virtues of sticking with your team through the tough times and watching them grow into champions as opposed to latching onto whatever store bought team comes into vogue every few years.
It was fun. They weren't as fun to talk to as Cards fans (my favorite fans of another team), but they were much nicer than Cubs fans (who I only say horrible things to).
It totally reminds of going to see the Reds V. Braves in the nineties.
