You Know You’re A Red Sox Fan When…

You Know You’re A Red Sox Fan When…
July rolls around and you ditch your Red Sox jersey for a New England Patriot’s jersey.

Your kid draws you a picture of a rainbow and you tell him to “re-draw it!” and “get rid of the Yankee Blue!”

You have convinced yourself that you are really a Neil Diamond fan (Sweet Caroline), even though you wouldn’t be caught dead with any of his other mp3 songs on your Ipod!

You gauge how good the season will be by the color of Manny Ramirez’s “mood-ring hair.”

You start walking on your knuckles and tell your friends that you are a Tim Wakefield and Theo Epstein fan.

You name your newborn baby “Pesky”, “Yawkey”, “Yaz”, or “Wally”

You buy and handout for Christmas every year, the movie “Fever Pitch.”

You bust into your kid’s classroom on their first day of school and tell the teacher that the school is in violation of your “personal beliefs” by teaching your kid the lyrics to “I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy!”

You go through your kid’s trick or treat bag and throw out all of the “Baby Ruth” candy bars.

“The Deadliest Catch” isn’t a television series about catching “crab” in your book, it’s about catching “a whif” of Jason Varitek’s breath after he has eaten a Yawkey Dawg.

    just curious…when was the last time you guys got a ring…long season…hey didn’t you guys get rocked by the o’s yesterday…yup

    You know you’re a Red Sox fan when you always bring up the fact that we have ONLY won 26 world championships!

    That one’s for you Jonathan!

    26…but none in awhile…its’s great you guys had a good run in the last decade…so did the dallas cowboys…get back to mean you guys stop choking in the playoffs or the world series…

    Jonathan should you really being bringing up “how long it has been since we last got our ring?” It’s been about 6 years, but we still have 80 till we catch up with your longest streak. And chocking in the playoffs… wow that’s a good one. It is so easy for you to forget all those years the Soxes choked. Winning one championship in 86 years does not mean you can erase past history… so dont forget yours!

    And we didnt just have a good run for the decade…. I think it’s pretty safe to say we had a great run for the century! Go Yanks!

    Jonathan, don’t you get tired of repeating yourself? All the time it’s choke in the playoffs, no world series in “forever”. You must be a 2004 bandwagoner if you don’t remember all the “great” Red Flop history. Get back to your crab boat I think another episode of “Deadliest Catch” starring Jason Varitek is starting soon!!

    all of you guys are rally idiots…check out the score really…in the expansion and common draft era of baseball…the last 49yrs…you guys have won 6 titles…and lost more times in the series than you have won so get back to me on the choking part…and you guys are So right you guys were great in the 20’s and 30’s…i’m sure you guys were big fans back then

  8. luckyleftie300@aol.com

    Wow you are such a great baseball historian, by the way what is the Red Flop’s record since then?

  9. amber__11@hotmail.com

    Jason you sound angry. The only decades we didnt win a championship in were before the 20’s and the 80’s. Every other one we did some damage in. Do your research. We won 12 champiosnhips from 1941-1962. Plus we won 5 in the 30’s. Thats a awesome streak if I would say so.

    You point out that we have only won 6 in the expansion era. Well just how many have you won? Oh that’s right 1. You have know room to talk now do you.

    Ode to the Yankees’ Pain
    By Julie Westcott – Concord, NH

    The Evil Empire has fallen and the Yankees have lost,
    Steinbrenner, it seems, cannot afford the cost.
    All their millions could not buy an ALCS win,
    Now the Yankees have lost; let the celebrations begin!

    The stage was set for an ALCS sweep,
    Unfortunately, the bullpen would not go that deep.
    What happened to A-Rod; he went 0-4?
    Jeter got a hit, couldn’t he get a few more?

    Too bad that Kevin Brown had to punch a wall.
    He was pulled after two, with no command of the ball.
    A grand slam by Damon brought a tear to my eye,
    It felt like the heavens had fallen from the sky.

    Bellhorn was clutch, he had a pitch to hit, too,
    He skied it to right, and the Yankees’ fans booed.
    Big Papi’s the man, he got another home run,
    D. Lowe was perfect; New York fans were stunned.

    The Yankees’ pitchers did not live up to their stats.
    They didn’t have enough for the Red Sox bats.
    The Bronx bombers efforts just weren’t enough,
    Red Sox Nation is just too tough.

    Down 0-3, history was made,
    The Sox stood strong, they were not afraid.
    Walk off after walk off, the Red Sox prevailed,
    Their bullpen and lineup caused the Yankees to fail.

    The loss last year made this victory sweeter,
    Even their captain couldn’t save ’em, stupid Derek Jeter.
    The Sox reversed the curse from 1918,
    This year they’ve shown us, they really are the team.

    The house that Ruth built has fallen to dust,
    55,000 fans were finally shushed.
    For the Yankees fans this poem is painful to read,
    We’ll say, “Cowboy Up! You just gotta believe.”

    Go Sox
