D,
I'm surprised you didn't know this about Connecticut. I'd say the Western half of the state is very much Yankees territory... where as the Eastern half is very much New England. My Fathers side of the family is from Southington... which I would say is a little over 1/3 of the way into the state... and that's kind of split.
You can definitely find Sox games though. i know because I've listened to a few. But maybe not as far East as say... Danbury. But Danbury is right on the NY border practically.
Anyway... I dont know it was uch of a "yawn" with the Yankees clinching. Sure it was a foregone conclusion... but sweeping the Sox to do so,(and we had guys sitting too) and tying the season series at 9-9 after an 0-8 start... that means something. It just does. I mean you guys haven't beaten un is... well it seems like forever... in fact it seems like last season... because it might as well have been. The team is completely different now. but it was cool of you to give props, even if it was begrudgingly. haha I dont know about you... but I want a NY/Boston ALCS bad. I wouldn't have said that the past few years... but I want it.

just not the same if they're not battling it out in the ALCS. let's hope the Sox continue their dominance of LA, and the Yanks don't stumble against Detroit...

baseball at it's finest! (this is why non-sox and non-yankee fans hate our teams...)

What! You need to re-check your facts about Connecticut. I've been a die-hard Sox's fan since the Dr. smack my @ss. If any thing I would say the lower western part has fallen into the dark side long ago because of the 90 mile rule of the TV gods. If there were no fans in Ct. Than why did Red Sox Nation (Which included John Henry and Tom Werner) come to both New Haven and Waterbury the past couple years in the beginnings of the Nation. I was there in 2004 when New Haven's own Joe Castiglione was on hand talking about the old days hanging out with his brother a famous Dr. in the New Haven area and having some Cannoli's from Disorbo's bakery and having pizza from Wooster street. Don't throw all of Ct under the Bus. Bad enough that I have to put up with Yankee fans on a daily bases. Red Sox Nation is in the blood, not created like the "Universe" I laugh everyday when I can name more facts about the Yankee's than their own fans. So,show the love for CT and add a note to the DD commercial: " Manhattan chowder I've never heard of it either but the chowder at the "Black Rose!" enough said! Go Sox's!

I agree that Connecticut has become a suburb of New York and no longer belongs in the New England family. However, we shouldn't just give the state away. Perhaps, in return, we can allow Vermont and Massachusetts expand our borders West to Lake Ontario? They have Yankees fans up there but it is sparsely populated so a re-education program would not be that expensive. How many Bills fans would love an excuse to stop being Bills fans?

Erik

Doubtful Scott. Vermont is split in two Yankees and Sox. Because the state runs parallel. Trust me I spent 14 summers of my life up there. You can have New Hampshire. While you'e at it.. take Long Island... that slop hole that it is... Most of them are Mets fans anyway... and they would gladly convert. It's not like they dont root for the Sox anyway as Mets fans, because they have nothing else to root for come... oh... June... usually.

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
