What is the point…

of this article?
Seriously? An article in the NY Times Sunday magazine about…. what? That the Red Sox have a fan base so completely devoted to our team that even when we hate them, we love them? That such love and devotion and hope has come with very memorable, even storied, moments of utter agony? That we have constant dialogue about our Sox, to the point that even while our newly beloved Pats were on their way to 15 straight, we as a sports region were very caught up in the trade-that-wasn’t? None of what he writes is new, nor is any of it really timely – especially coming at the tail end of a week where the Sox have cut the Yankees’ lead in the AL East in half, and even Eric Wilbur is becoming a late-season optimist.
