Faith Springs Eternal

– BoSox Open Today! –

The Red Sox open their season in Texas this afternoon, and members of the Nation are poised and ready to help the club win its first World Series in, well, two years.

Fever Pitch is in the DVD player, and has been watched and rerun for a week to recapture that championship feeling … Barrett jerseys and Brunansky T-shirts have been liberated from storage and made ready to wear … faded Sox painter’s hats are hanging on the porch, paying homage to Dewey, Rooster, and the rest of that late ’70s show … The Impossible Dream is on the old turntable, the dulcet tones of Ken Coleman evoking for many a feeling of youthful innocence …

It’s Opening Day, and This Could Be the Year.

Play Ball!
