In response to redsoxdirtdog's comment:
Perhaps I missed something, but I think the point about Lynn, Rice, etc. has less to do with a "time period" per say, than the fact that it is clearly illustrative of a time when going with the home-grown boys led to a FANTASTIC WINNING ERA. I don't think it was in any way meant to define what constitutes a knowledgable or real Sox fan, but more a clear time when going with our boys from the farm, & it leading to a bountiful crop.
As for being a chik? Not sure that that matters in the least! I love the fact that Kimmy is an epic over-reactor. I love the fact that she will tear it up with the boys! She's got heart! Real heart! The heart of a lion. She takes no BS, just like the Sox. These Red Sox babes are what completes us. Can you imagine being married to a chikk who didn't care about the Sox. Life would truly be without meaning. If you are lucky enough to marry one of these fire-breathing babes, who over-reacts to all things Red Sox, & life, you will be a happy man! Great to watch a game with, & really really great to play games with!!! ;)
Yes, we should all marry a drama queen who over reacts to the smallest things...That should make for a long lasting relationship.
I give you that KST is passionate about the sox, but I can do without the umpire/NYY conspiracy theory, the ultra sensitive reactions to very simple comments and all that though...Im not a fan of drama.
I've been here since 2010, how much drama are we talking about? My fair share? And the umpire conspiracy is not just a theory as pointed out in my thread "Joba to the Tigers".
FTR all females are ultra sensitive, as you call them. I think I handle it well here. Enough to be called another male poster, if you can believe it. I still can't.
your reaction to that comment earlier in this thread I was referring to is common place for you. And no, not all women react that way.
Like I said, I dont doubt your passion and love for everything red sox. Just stuff like that is not necessary IMO.
