Truck Day Signifies a New Beginning for Red Sox Nation

It’s here.  It is finally here! The day that represents the unofficial start of Spring Training.  I’m talking about TRUCK DAY BABY!

Every Red Sox fan circles this day on their calendar and we sit quietly, eagerly anticipating it’s arrival.  Like a kid waiting for Christmas, Truck Day has become a tradition amongst Red Sox Nation.  The day the equipment truck leaves Fenway Park and ventures on a long trip to Fort Myers, the site of the Red Sox Spring Training.

Not only does it mean that spring training is a week away, but it signifies the start of a new beginning.  A new era is about to launch for the Boston Red Sox. Call it what you want, the Bobby V era, the Cherington era, the post September era, whatever you want.  Just know that this is a new beginning and things will be different this year.

Papelbon, Varitek, Scutaro, Reddick, and Lowrie are gone.  Ross, Sweeney, Melancon, Punto and Bailey are in.  It’s a new dynamic with an underdog role for this club and I welcome and embrace the changes.

Pitchers and catchers report in seven days, but today is Truck Day.  The unofficial, official start to the new 2012 year.  Let’s go Red Sox, let’s go.

It’s too bad that Truck Day wasn’t during the week.  I think it’s fair to say that this would become a Nation’s holiday.
