Ode to Red Sox

In honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s a brief poem to celebrate our love for the Red Sox.

Roses are red,
our Sox are too,
Baseball starts soon.
We know what to do.

We’ll sing and cheer,
loud as can be.
Repeat as Champs?
Just wait and see!

Shakespeare it’s not, but a fan’s love isn’t always perfect. Sometimes we can get carried away. Sometimes we fight with each other over the “right” way to support our team. Sometimes we get frustrated and angry with players. Sometimes we doubt management decisions. But in the end it’s all worth it. The joy we have as fans far outweighs the disappointments.

Pitchers and catchers officially report to Spring Training tomorrow and many players are already in Fort Meyers brushing off the winter rust. The first Spring Training game is less than two weeks away. Twitter accounts of baseball writers and reporters are already tweeting photos of our guys in batting cages.

The hearts of fans are all atwitter with love and excitement for another season of Red Sox baseball which is right around the corner. Those of us in the northeast are still digging out from under the snow and trying to avoid hypothermia. Thinking about the better days ahead when the sun will be shining down on baseball diamonds across the country fills our chilly heart with joyful anticipation.

Play Ball!
