Another Boston Series cometh
Well, first one at home this season. I have to work late on each of the days, so I am not going to be there. Anyone else going, or does anyone LIKE going to Boston series at home? I often have much less fun at Boston games, and not because of their team being successful, but because of the Red Sox fans.
I could deal with it if not for the legions of lame Boston bandwagon fans. It's a terrible shame, too. Boston fans are arrogant fans with a chip on their shoulder and constantly pulling out a New York inferiority complex, which leads to over-aggressive frat-boy buffoons being down right hostile to Orioles fans in our own house (this has too often been my own experience).
I hope that the Pink Hat Sox nation does not come out in full force and start with their Camden Yards entitlement drown out cheers. I mean, it is Monday-Wednesday, and people have to work, right? Oh yeah, I forgot that these people don't have real jobs.
As much as everyone on this board wants orange and black to outnumber red and pink, it will take a few years of winning baseball to steadily draw the casual baseball fans in the town on a week night against a first place team. In the meantime, those who do go: cheer hard, protect your own, don't lose your cool, and if you do feel like provoking: parody them!
Wear T shirts with these slogans:
"B is for Bandwagon"
"Red Sox Nation: die hard since 2004"
"I heart Billy Buckner"
"Yankees, Red Sox: I can't tell the difference either"
"My other shirt is a Gorilla Suit"
"I root for whichever team wins the World Series"
And now ends my Red Sox home games rant. Good luck out there, Orioles. Don't go quietly into the night!

Lester, Smoltz and Beckett. Keep the pain meds nearby.

Just something lame I made a few months ago. I think it belongs on a t-shirt for "prime" games.

Given that Pink Hat Nation took over Washington just last week and that it's a weekday series (with a 1:35 game on Wednesday), I think the infestation rate is going to be lower than usual.

I will be there Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon.
If you want my feeling on "Bandwagon Nation", see my signature.
Sadly, I have a bad feeling about the crowd this week. It is a middle of the week series, but it is the week of July 4th, so many people are on vacation, which means probably more Sox "fans" than there normally would be. Hopefully I am wrong.

I am NOT looking forward to the next three days, I'm contemplating taking a few days off watching baseball. We always get owned by Boston, and their pink hat wearing, -1000 baseball IQ fans are the worse on this planet. Life's stressful enough right now, I don't need a game to make it even more so.
That said, of course i'll still watch. Go O's!!!

Sox series always a tough one around here, obvious reasons. Not the least of which is my 8yo daughter has a huge crush on Dustin Pedroia.

"Who was the manager of the Red Sox in 2003?" That will usually stump about 90% of them. Yes, I have tried it, and yes, the answer I was given was "Terry Franconia."
