I am Irish. I always feel like this explains my love for the Red Sox. In Texas it doesn't. I am no prolific writer but I will tell you this, everything I know about true love, I learned from the Red Sox. I learned what its like to believe in something and it break your heart, nay, not even acknowledge that you loved it so much in the first place. I learned that in life sometimes you strike out, and sometimes you take a chance and steal home. I learned devotion and loyalty and not giving up because there are a few bad stretches. I also learned that I was not alone in this love affair. All Boston fans are like me. Boston fans are the best of the best. We are the ones that you bring up certain names and we are pounding tables and tearing up like a bunch of overgrown first graders. But this, is true love. So while I live in Texas, and my eyes may never gaze at Fenway Park (oh man they better at some point!) I am a Red Sox fan.
