Happy 06 to all in YFSF land (and a special tip o’ the cap to my artful antagonist, SF). I passed this holiday weekend in Enemy Territory–and a pleasant time it was, though it’s good to be back in the Apple. (A suggestion from this sojourn a propos nothing: Sox fans may want to cross the Fens to the Gardner Museum for the Bellini show). Anyway, we did review the local press for word on our favorite subject. A story in the Phoenix–"Sports Wishes for 2006"–was indicative of the general mood.
#4: Johnny Damon season-ending injury in April
#5: Red Sox win World Series
That’s right. Boston’s leading lefty alternative is more interested in an injury to an erstwhiler hero than another WS ring. So sad.
