About Me: Retired social worker, educator, umpire, player and coach. Have followed all Boston teams all over the country and before the Pats even existed, The Giants were the FB team and the Braves were the BB team for a lot of us. This has been a fantastic decade..I'm glad I'm still around to see it!!! Let's keep it going and BE CIVIL while doing it!!!

    Ah, you had to bring up 1948. As an 8 year old in 1948, there was no doubt we were going to have a 'subway series". Then my world was crushed. The Sox lost a playoff to the original middle named guy.. more »

    Stop the b.s. When we as a society value our children by putting our money where our mouth is, then we can have this discussion. The old saying...."Don't talk to me about your priorities, SHOW me your more »

    FINALLY, a truthful approach to "personal issues". As a life long Red Sox "observer" 65 years and a HS coach, 25 year umpire and former player, I commend Pete for this story. I also have had a 40 year more »
