NBC's Tim Russert, host of "Meet the Press," will make a guest appearance on NESN as he moderates a discussion among the candidates for the President of Red Sox Nation. He will be joined by NESN's Red Sox field reporter Tina Cervasio serving as co-moderator.

"For decades, Boston has had a reputation of adoring its sports and its politics," said Larry Lucchino, the Red Sox' President/CEO. "We are honored that one of our top fans in Washington will moderate this discussion about baseball."

If I was a serious Red Sox fan, I would be hanging my head in shame at any mention of this "presidential race".

Fenway, what is the mood amongst the locals?

Horrified. Ownership is insane. How Gammons allowed himself to get mixed up in this...

Will Gammons have his running crew with him?

:lol: she appeared on tape along with Gammons ( who had to go to Bristol for a special this afternoon on the playoff races )

Russert was hysterical

Why is Russert wearing a BC shirt?:angry:

He went to John Carroll (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_Russert)in Cleveland

Most Red Sox fans are fed up with this whole nonsense.

As if anyone needed one more reason why Red Sox fans have become the laughingstock of the baseball word, we present to you the search for a President of Red Sox Nation. Ironically, as the search intensifies for the betterment of corporate Red Sox Nation, the Red Sox fan dies a slow death, a fact that people in the marketing department canít seem to get a handle on as they relentlessly push on.

If youíre like me, youíve simply tried to ignore the entire situation, lowering the volume when Jerry Remy provides you with his nightly take on the happenings of the election and cringing at the fact that Peter Gammons, of all people, is actually involved in this ridiculous affair.

The Red Sox are completely embarrassing themselves and I love every minute of it. I'm at a loss for words.

This makes me feel bad for the old school Red Sox fans who were around before their bandwagon explosion.

I know so many people who used to go to 15-20 games a year and now are lucky if they go twice.

But right now anything this ownership does turns to gold.

I thought the show Sox Appeal would be a complete bomb but it continues to win its timeslot every single time it airs :(:

Fenway has become a theme park that rivals Disney for plucking money out of saps. Still just about every baseball fan in America wants to see one game there and they know that.

But this RSN election is just too much
