As we alluded to in our About page, we have a slight (very large) love for the state of Massachusetts. One of the reasons we do is the passion that the people in the state have for the Boston Red Sox. I’ve been living in Springfield, Mass for about 20 years now, and Springfield, like just about anywhere else in the state, is ripe with people sporting Boston ‘B’ hats showing their Red Sox pride. You might think ‘Any other state in the Union has people like this who support their favorite team’. But it’s different when you come from Boston.
Why is it different? I don’t know if I could properly sum it up in even 5000 words for you to read, so perhaps I’ll just post this cool little video, and you can be the judge for yourself…
We were going to post something a little more vulgar, but we’ll save that for later.
This gives you a glimpse into a bunch of different places you have to see when you travel to Boston (pronounced Bah-sten), but really the very best thing to do is to find a local resident, and ask them some questions. Normally, you’ll get some very friendly people, unless you venture to Southie, where you’ll need to watch out for Whitey Bulger (I joke, I joke).
For the time being, enjoy that video, and let us know your thoughts on our post in the comments below.
