A gift of love to the Banter - from a Sox fan. So some time when those guys up north give you some grief, cut 'em some slack.
Not in playoffs though.
Such a great picture. Ben is the MAN. Is he the family rebel? How did he wind up a Sox fan?
checkout out his work on his site. marvelous stuff.
 Yes and no. He didn't choose the Red Sox to rebel. He was 2 or 3 and we went to Fenway in 83 or 84 and he got a Boston helmet w/ a B on it and nobody cared to stop him. I was anti-Yankee at the time because of the Reggie thing. The whole family was anti-Steinbrenner.
But then when we were all grown up and getting into the Yanks re-building in 93 and 94, he chose to stick with the Sox. I don't think any of us could have foreseen the drama that was coming, but after some initial pettiness, we have done a passable job of not allowing it to ruin our lives.
3) Yup, the man has skillz.
4) Well, you have to admire his sense of loyalty.
 yeah, but he was young enough then, 12, to make the move with no questions asked. by that time, there was a hint of rebellion to it. my big mistake was not taking advantage of the boggs signing to encourage a smooth, logical transition.
good work Ben!
A gift of love? "hopefully this jinxes both Rivera and the Yankees."
 lighten up, francis ;)
