I dump his latest column into the "If you say it enough maybe it will be come true" file. How many times do these Globe flunkees have to repeat the myth "This is a Red sox town, always was, always will be"? This was a hockey basketball town for a long time. In the 80s it was 1.Celtics 2. Bruins 3. Red Sox 4. Pats. How many fans attended Clemens' first 20K performance? 10,000? How easy was it for me as a kid to get into an empty Fenway? Very, even post 86. What a shill. And he chooses the year 1990 to evaluate the Pats fan base? This is a way guys like Shaughnessy can make an excuse for never taking the effort to learn square 1 about football. Combined with the fact his son is a baseball player, I suppose it helps him feel even more like his family belongs in the town sports aristocracy. Sometimes reading the Globe is like being in "1984" with history being rewritten before your eyes in a factory of false myths.
