Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

I’m In

“You’re either two feet in now or you’re two feet out. Let us know now because we’re coming.”

I’m in Dustin, I’m in. But, holy cow, you guys make it interesting, don’t you?

Follow the above link for more quotes from your Boston Red Sox regarding their feelings about being at Fenway tomorrow with the possibility of the fans being hostile.

They’ve spent almost ten days on the road dealing with opposing fans, tough losses and overly critical media folk.  I don’t care what they make and I don’t care how famous they are, they need our damn support and if we’re any kind of fans that’s what we’ll be giving tomorrow.

As a related aside, the first person near me tomorrow who boos Darnell McDonald might get a fist in the face.  Just throwing that out there as a general warning.

And, finally, Gordon Edes tweeted another quote from Pedroia: “We need those fans more than ever.” Do with that what you will.

Regardless of what has gone on since last Friday, tomorrow is Opening Day.  We should be happy and celebrating and supportive of the team.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

  2. Here is a legitimate question. Would you boo your child after he or she got a bad grade or something comparable? When i got in a car accident over the summer my parents didnt get angry. They told me everything was going to be fine and assured that i was not hurt. You arent a fan if you boo your team.

    • I am not a fan of negative reinforcement. So, Brian, oddly enough I totally agree with you. 🙂

  7. All in, always.

    And as usual, Pedey puts it perfectly. We remember a couple years back when the media was all over David Ortiz for his miserable start and carping that he was through, etc. That’s when Pedey said, in better words than mine, that Papi was a great hitter and would be just fine and that everybody should chill, and for illustrative analogy reminded them all how they’d felt about HIM in his rookie spring when he was hitting a buck fifty and they thought he couldn’t make it. “What happened next? Laser show.”
