An open message to Boston Red Sox Fans
Congratulations, from a Yankees Fan...
While it hasn't always been easy being a Yankees fan, as of late it certainly has been quite fun (not counting, of course, these past three weeks). You, on the other hand, have been through a rough three generations. Yet, you fill Fenway to the point where it is bursting at its' seams -- day in and day out. You have stuck with your team no matter what. One cannot help but admire and respect your loyalty and devotion.
It is harder than ever to win; it is only in recent history that teams have had to battle their way through one five-game series, and then two seven-game series to win a championship. To root for your team through the ups and downs of a 162-game season, and then to feel the pressure, the pain, the fear, and hopefully the joy that October brings is unlike anything else.
When the Yankees beat Atlanta eight years ago, it seemed like eons since we Yankee fans had tasted victory -- but it was "only" eighteen years. While Pedro, Johnny Damon, David Ortiz, Jason Varitek, Curt Schilling, Terry Francona and the rest of the cast earned the victory on the field, nobody deserves this more than you do.
Wait 'til next year! "Next year," the World Series Pennant will call Fenway Park home. To watch that flag get raised over your park on opening day (by Johnny Pesky I would suspect) will be a priceless moment; one for which many of you have waited a lifetime. Watching the pennant fly over your field will put smiles on your faces throughout next season.
Revel in it. You have earned it, and you certainly deserve it.
