First Time Pride

Boston Red Sox LogoSome days start off better and more unexpectedly than other.  This was one of them. 🙂

It has become clear that the people of this country, even those in Boston, are ready for change and starving for a different kind of politics. For the first time in my life as a Yankees fan I am proud of the Boston Red Sox fans because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback in America.

It seems that Obama arrogantly chose to interject himself into Fenway Park’s 100th Anniversary on Friday, April 20, 2012.

The crowd’s response to the Campaigner-in-Chief’s message, delivered via the stadium’s Jumbotron, was a chorus of boos and cat-calls.

At todays’s Red Sox game, Obama is on big screen to recognize Fenway’s 100th anniversary, followed by loud boos. GO SOX! BYE BYE OBAMA!

One thing though, this is not just the first time in my adult time that I’m proud of the Boston fans. This was a Yankees v. Red Sox game and is the first time in my memory that the two sets of fans could agree on anything.

I was at bar when the Yankees and Red Sox were playing in the World Series and I saw the fans literally light each other on fire! I shit you not.

So Obama can, in fact, unite people – even people as virulently opposed to each other as the respective fans of the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. That’s a historic accomplishment.
