Thread: Greetings From Ohio

  1. #1

    Greetings From Ohio

    I am 74 years old and a lifelong Red Sox fan. My Granddad took me to my first game at Fenway when I was 10 years old. I was born in East Boston, moved to Winthrop when I was 7, and graduated from Northeastern. Spent two years in the Army (1967-1969) and moved west for my job (last stop was Akron, Ohio where I worked for General Tire). It was difficult being a Red Sox fan in Ohio, especially during the years when the Indians were a bad team. My boss at GT was a Yankee fan, so we had a lot of friendly disagreements. I look forward to discussing the Sox with people who share my lifelong love for the team.

    Welcome to the Rogue State.

    I look forward to reading your posts.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Welcome aboard! I have family in Akron, and I love being in Ohio. Very underrated part of the country.

    - From the 2004 ALCS Game 4 Gamethread. A reminder that no game is over until the final out is recorded, and things will always get better. Misspellings unchanged as a reminder that Yankees fans are just terrible.
