The fabulous new World Series Champs may be called the Boston Red Sox, but they’re New England’s team to most baseball fans up here and apparently in the other New England states.
We hope that, if the Sox eventually must move out of their quirky/tiny (but wonderful/historic) Fenway Park, they’ll follow the New England Patriots’ example. The Pats were the Boston Patriots until 1971, when they moved out to Foxborough, Massachusetts, and become the only National Football League team with a multi-state moniker.
We see here neighbor Judith Fuller’s banner, which has been flying on Naskeag Road for about 10 days. (Brooklin, Maine)
