Seriously Chapter 39: Cry No Tears For the Sox
The first and prime commitment Sports Seriously has is to give you the news as it is, straight and without slant or bias. That being said, we don't fly the Red Sox colors or support the Red Sox brand here at the Sports Seriously franchise. (Truth be told, you can't even work at this agency unless you're a verified National League person.) The complete unraveling of the Red Sox comes without sympathy of any kind, not even from my Beantown correspondent, Cliff Livingston. (He wonders if he even likes Youkilis anymore.) "Arrogant Boston Red Sox fans have two championship trophies they can sit around and polish," Clifford said to me. And I said, "that's well put, especially coming from you." Rest in peace, and yet at the same time sayonara, Boston Red Sox of 2009.
