Many of you were worried that the Boston fans would lose their edge after experiencing so much on-field success. Worry no longer. Turns out the Red Sox fans are the same racist jerks you have come to know and hate.
Torii Hunter told the Riverside Press Enterprise that he hears racial taunts from Boston fans.
"My first five or six (years), I was 'That N-word,'" said Hunter, now in his ninth season. "Some people would chant that out, some people would throw beer or whatever ... batteries."
Gary Matthews Jr. also isn’t a huge fan.
"It's one of the few places you hear racial comments every once in a while … I don't know if it's part of the culture out there or the fact that it's really a college city, kind of.”
Boston as a college town? Nope, they are just your basic, fun-loving racists. There is a reason why one of Boston’s most beloved sports figures – Bill Russell – still has a bad relationship with the city. People give the South a bad time for being racist, but they have nothing on Boston. Racism is a part of their culture. Hell, they probably sell Clan sheets with Red Sox logos on them. (Of course, they come in pink for the ladies.)
Although, Hunter says that he hears the racial stuff less now that he’s had some success in his career. So in Boston, you are only an (n-bomb) if you hit below .300.
Oh, and for the record, the singing of “Sweet Caroline” is super lame. You are no longer allowed to speak about the Rally Monkey.
