With aggressive, creative leadership and investment- the dyamic can be changed- but going back to the mid-80's JR has always played the role of "victim" vs. truly going after it.
Also, the reasons that it supposedly not cool to be a Sox fan are pretty much old stereotypes and some are outright fabrications by the Trib back when they ran the Cubs.
What should really be the focus is how much fun it is to go to a Sox game.
I have at least one group a year of co-workers in Evanston, and other than the people I know are fans all remark to me how much fun they had and how nice the park is, often surprised. That needs to change.
