This is one of the more poignant threads I have seen on WSI. Thanks for starting it.
My grandfather, John, one of the orginal dark clouds is watching this and smiling wide. He taught an entire family to root for the sox and we are carrying on his legacy in style.
My aunt Georgeanna, who was taken way too soon from us is smiling at her daughter who is as big a Sox fan as any one of us and has to do deal with all of the Yankee fans she lives near. I hope this gives her some joy as well.
To all of those Sox fans who are thinking of family and friends departed, drink one tonight in honor of them .
For John and Anna
