With the Red Sox, you have more of a literary interest in it. You know they’re going to lose; you’re just interested in how the plot is going to unfold.
D. B. Sweeney
I think Red Sox fans have always been good to me; they’ve treated me well.
Occasionally, a young catcher is born with a backup’s soul. Bob Montgomery was on the Red Sox opening day roster for the entire 1970s, yet he never had more than 254 at-bats in a season.
Most of the time, if someone gives me trouble at a bar or something, saying, ‘Why do you hate the Red Sox or Patriots?’ they end up buying you a drink or whatever. They like to be heard, say their piece, and then talk about the team.
Growing up, I was a big Red Sox fan and looked up to guys like Dustin Pedroia, who’s obviously not the biggest guy, but the way he competes, the way he works, it was motivating for me.
I’m a Republican. I’m a former Red Sox. I have a nasty habit of talking – a lot – about anything anyone asks me and totally unconcerned about giving you my opinion. You will never question where I stand – right or wrong, agree or disagree – on anything.
I grew up in New Bedford, Massachusetts, and I’m a huge Red Sox fan. I’ve probably been to Fenway 40 times. I’ve been pretty lucky as a sports fan because the Patriots have won Super Bowls and the Red Sox have won World Series during my lifetime.
I love Boston. I love Fenway Park. I love Red Sox history. But in no way am I a Red Sox fan.
I am very much a Red Sox fan; I can name you more players than you could possibly imagine. It’s just part of who I am.
Bill de Blasio
If you had to point to one thing that made it less likely that the Red Sox would win the World Series, I would say it was those people that go to Fenway Park to watch the games. And then the media around it.
The Red Sox are the local scapegoats. It’s hard enough to play baseball without being the local scapegoat too.
The truth is that for those 86 long years when the Red Sox went without a World Series win, fans were not only in a recession, but trapped in a longstanding, deeply entrenched sports depression.
I’m not going to try to deny that I’m a Red Sox fan. I grew up a Red Sox fan, had a great decade here that I really enjoyed, and that will always be a part of me.
I was late to the Knicks. My dad was a big fan. But I first started watching baseball; I became a Red Sox fan. My dad was a Mets fan. I wanted to have my own team and league.
I find it funny how people from Boston and New York hate each other because of pro teams. But, like, everyone on the Red Sox is a random millionaire athlete from somewhere else.
My earliest memories of going to Fenway with my father are a blur: many games, me too young to care, but aware that our team ‘stunk.’ In those years, the 1960s, the Red Sox baseball card I always coveted most was not Carl Yastrzemski’s but the far more ordinary Felix Mantilla’s.
Our goal in Liverpool is to create the kind of stability that the Red Sox enjoy. We are committed to building for the long term.
John W. Henry
Just to be able to put on the uniform in general is a blessing, and when it says Red Sox on it, it makes it that much better.
As I sat back and imagined what my transition from the Red Sox might be, I thought it would smell more like champagne than beer, I guess you would say.
We want to try and transform the Red Sox into a team like the Braves or the Yankees, where you can almost count on the postseason every year.
It’s definitely a dream come true playing for the Red Sox.
I grew up a Red Sox fan. I grew up going to Fenway Park and the Museum of Fine Arts and the Science Museum and Symphony Hall and going to the Common, walking around. My whole family at different times lived and worked in Boston.
There’s so much passion and so much interest in the Red Sox in Boston.
I’m an avid Boston Red Sox fan.
New York is great, but the New England fans are probably the most knowledgeable and ardent fans, and not just in baseball, but all sports. But Red Sox Nation is Red Sox Nation.
The Cubs – with their passionate fans, dedicated ownership, tradition, and World Series drought – represented the ultimate new challenge and the one team I could imagine working for after such a fulfilling Red Sox experience.
All literary men are Red Sox fans – to be a Yankee fan in a literate society is to endanger your life.
Here’s the thing about Red Sox fans, or actually just fans from that region, in general: they appreciate the effort. And if you mail it in or if you give 80 percent, even with a win, they’ll let you know that’s not how you do it. They want – if it’s comedian, if it’s a musician, bring us your best show.
It wasn’t like it is now. But for the types of teams we had, the fans were very good here. On some Thursday afternoon games, we’d get 25,000 fans. That was remarkable. This has always been a great Red Sox city.
In Massachusetts, scientists have created the first human clone. The bad thing is that in thirty years, the clone will still be depressed because the Boston Red Sox will still have not won a World Series.
I live for the Red Sox. I thoroughly enjoy them. For whatever reason, baseball has been a lot more fun for me in recent years. I loosely follow the Patriots and I root for them. I loosely follow the Celtics and then it gets to playoff time and I don’t miss a game. Same with the Bruins. I’m not the diehard fan anymore.
I am old enough to remember every Red Sox season since 1975. Baseball is long. Baseball takes forever. It’s day in, day out, for six solid months – seven if you’re lucky. Winning is always fun.
Just as the Red Sox proved the critics wrong, Maine can compete and can win.
I’d love to open a restaurant that changes every month. One month it would be a mom and bar spaghetti-and-meatball, Red Sox place, and the next it would be a British pub, and everyone gets in a fight.
I’m a former Red Sox fan, now fully rehabilitated.
I don’t want to be buried in a Red Sox casket.
The Red Sox believe what’s written. If it’s written that I should be traded, more times than not, that’s what ends up happening. Look at the people who’ve gotten traded around here. It’s not their doing.
I became a Yankees fan for a few years. But now, I gotta say, I’m really rooting for the Red Sox.
The Red Sox hadn’t won in 86 years when we took over. We didn’t run from that challenge – we embraced it.
When the Red Sox spent $300million on Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford, Liverpool fans were irate. It actually should have been Boston fans.
John W. Henry
Red Sox fans have been pushed to the brink over the years, but that’s how faith grows stronger.
We picked the Red Sox because they lose. If you root for something that loses for 86 years, you’re a pretty good fan. You don’t have to win everything to be a fan of something.
I would like to own the Red Sox.
People saying, ‘Life didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to.’ Welcome to the club. I wanted to be the starting center-fielder for the Boston Red Sox, for chrissakes!
