I don't live in the city, but two of my granddaughters do - and are growing up there. When they were born, I made it a number one priority to inoculate them against the virus that would make them become Mets, or much worse, Yankees fans. (How have you handled this problem?)
I suceeded. One of the first things I did was imprint the Sox B in their minds when they were infants by wearing my old Sox cap every time I bent over their carriage or crib. I figured that if it would work with baby Zebras it would work with them. I also took them to Sox games and bought them all sorts of Sox souvenirs. My oldest may have the largest selection of pink Sox memorabilia in the world.
I also wrote a book about my life as a Red Sox fan - I went to my first Sox game in 1942 - and they're both in it. And they helped me develop my blog that provides a view of the Sox from someone who's been through it all and help to ease the frustration and suffering of those who have mostly experienced the good years and have been bummed out ever since September 2011 and all of 2012.
