Obligatory Super Bowl Post - Red Sox Edition

I grew up in the Boston area so I've been a Patriots fan as long as I can remember. So if they win the Super Bowl, that would be great. I just got an email from Amazon.com asking me to buy some book about the Patriots called "19-0" or something, which I think is a bit premature.

But I think it says something when, a week before the big football game in January, I already know that Red Sox pitchers and catchers report to spring training on February 16. I'm pretty sure the rest of the team arrives on February 22. I've already thought about what the pitching rotation might look like next year. I'm thinking about their options for a left-handed bat off the bench.

And I thought about how much I just liked the characters on that 2007 Red Sox team, and that there are a couple of great role models on that team.

The Super Bowl is great, but the World Series is better.

Funny how our teams keep matching up. Yankees/Sox, Giants/Pats. Except I'm much less confident about the Giants than I am with the Yankees. ;)

Same sentiments here -- football is great, but baseball is better.

18 days until pitchers and catchers...
