I’m that dickhead who gives dirty looks to people wearing Red Sox gear in New York. It’s a private game I play and yeah, it’s pitiful. I haven’t seen as many Red Sox hats this summer, though. And when I do see them, my instinct is not to sneer but to be impressed. These are your Red Sox fans, not the bandwagon variety. Plus, there is little pleasure to be had in busting chops when a team is lousy. It’s just too easy.
Which isn’t to say that I’m not happy that the Red Sox have been awful. I just won’t crow about it.
