I was at Logan Airport this afternoon while the Sox were playing. You should have seen the crowds circled around TVs. People were getting off planes and staying in the airport to watch the game. The Sox came up in many meetings over the past few days. Everyone is just SO into baseball here.
Los Angeles business trips ....... little interest in baseball. It's all basketball talk there.
Cincinnati may be an old baseball town, but it has quiet, polite fans.
In Boston it's just such a phenomenon. It's like the whole town stops for a mini holiday when a game is on.
BTW, for you Bostonians .......... your traffic is a freaking nightmare! I don't know how you get through the big dig disaster. This morning there was an accident and a water main break on top of the normal construction and the big dig shut down. My cab had a hell of a time just getting the mile or so distance I needed.
