Not so much.
The Red Sox fans assumed the turtle position like Claude Lemieux.
The Red Sox fans have no problem getting in the face of a soccer mom holding a baby. The Red Sox fans have no problem brandishing a weapon to a woman in a wheel chair. But that stuff wasn’t going to fly in the coliseum. Apparently not being the majority (like what happens in certain sections of Angels Stadium) or having the balls to run their mouths to – as one diminutive Red Sox fan at work put it – those (expletive Hispanics), helped quell what could have been another “Boston massacre.”
And that’s all you need to know about the front-running Sox fans. No wonder so many of them wear pink hats.
But this should serve as a warning to anybody attending Angels vs. Red Sox games this summer. The Red Sox fans are not going to take this embarrassment lightly. So the elderly and disabled are warned. Red Sox fans are going to be pissed and they will be looking for some strollers to kick over.
You have been warned.
- Boston and New York faced each other in the Super Bowl. More than 115,000 Sox and Dodgers fans filled the Coliseum on Saturday. Lil’ Hater just can’t get his blimp license fast enough.
- You have to give credit to the Dodgers fans for showing up on Saturday. That actually was a pleasant surprise. And this doesn’t condone Dodgers fan behavior, but in instances like this, you have to favor the locals.
- A caller on the radio summed up the look for the Coliseum best when he described it as Major League Baseball meats Rock-n-Jock softball. Very fitting. But it should be pointed out that left field was a touch farther 50 years ago, but the current configuration of the Coliseum bastardized the dimensions on Saturday.
Congratulations to those of you who picked the chalk for the Final Four this season. And that’s not a slight. There are four teams that were certainly a cut above everybody else and its rare that they all make it to the Final Four. This is actually a good thing.
The games last week were an incredible letdown. Final Four weekend now has a chance to be one of the best ever. Four dominant teams doing their thing.
And the whole notion that UCLA could be the Buffalo Bills of college basketball almost is too good to be true.
This is where a prediction would be handy but believe me, you are better off.
