Being a Sox Fan

by Sox Fan czalgosz of the WSI message board

The other great Richard Lindberg Sox book (besides "Who's on Third" Wink was "Stuck on the Sox". My dad used to have a copy of that book - it was kind of dated (from the seventies) but it made me laugh in kind of a painful way. Whatever our disagreements or differences here on this board, we'll always be united by our suffering.

We're Sox fans, and as such there's always going to be a masochistic streak in each and every one of us. If we couldn't handle pain, heartbreak and misery, we'd have long since become Yankee fans, or else just went ahead and gotten lobotomies and used Cub hats to hide the scars.

There's a certain way that a Sox fan holds himself - he doesn't celebrate the futility, the way a Cub fan does, nor does he spew venom and hatred the way a BoSox fan does. No, the true Sox fan spends each winter grimly going over the broken pieces of the past season, trying to figure out what went wrong. Then, while the February snows are still melting, the Sox fan picks himself up, and once again embraces the hope and promise of a new season.

Being a Sox fan is like being in an abusive relationship - no matter how horrible it is, no matter how many times our hearts are broken, no matter how many times we promise to ourselves that we're leaving and never coming back, we always do. We tell ourselves, "this time, it's gonna be different".

And, of course, it never is, but what are you going to do?
