The Smallest Nation

Who? Jack. What? A Golden Retriever out for his morning walk. Evidence of Delusion? None, he’s a dog.

After walking past my boys playing in the yard and receiving a gentle pat on the back and big smiles, Jack sidestepped to the nearest tree and lifted his leg. He looked back over his shoulder to make sure we were watching.

His owner, trailing the scene, stopped next to me. “I think it was your hat.”

Yankee Snark: “Joke’s on Jack. The guy who owns that tree is a Sox fan.”

The Smallest Nation


Evidence of delusion? On the heels of the 2003 ALCS (not to mention 86 years of futility) how better to celebrate reaching the promised land than with a t-shirt that doesn’t even mention your team?

Yankee snark? None, since Yankee fans sprinted to wallow in the mud of the lame t-shirt wars. “Got Rings?” is by far the lamest of all entries on either side. When the Red Sox win next, maybe as soon as this year, will “Got Rings?” wearers rush out to buy an updated version to keep track of Boston’s progress?
