I am soooo sick of the off-season Sox talk. I like and support the Sox because they are the hometown team but, really....this foolish fanfare over Dice-K, or whatever they are calling him, is making me ill. It is FOOTBALL season!!! I realize the Pats have come a LONG way in their footbal NE fanbase but it still bothers me. I understand the whole Sox history VS the Pats shorter history here and all that but really........Does anyone else get annoyed the way I do? I hope I'm reading this the wrong way.......I hope the region appreciates the Pats but sometimes I wonder. I apologize if this rant is repetitive. This topic has been bugging me since the dramatized "Winter Talks" began. I feel like I'm the only one who is sick of the Sox!!!
