Let’s Do This More Often!
I you made the trek to Boston recently or the Cubs/Red Sox series, you may have gotten aglimpse o the “fnished product vision” that om Ricketts may have had or his ballclub whenhe frst purchased the team. Over the entire cool-but-pleasant New England weekend, there wasa certain “electricity” in the air that even Bostonians themselves were not prepared or. Te RedSox ans, most o whom were the most respectul and accommodating that you could ever hopeto meet, compared the Cubs series with the 2004 World Series in which the Red Sox ended their long championship drought. Most people said that we were thelargest road crowd that they had ever seen. Te Red Sox and Cubs Na-tions ormed a bond over the years that tied these two ranchisestogether. Most ans were sharing battle stories rom their many collective years o disappointment together (Buckner, ‘84Cubs, Bartman, Aaron Boone, etc.). Even though the RedSox have shed their “curse”, there was a mutual respect orthe many hearts broken or one team or the other oversummers past.
