Of course you do! I wanna know how much you guys love the Sox! I want to know how much you hate the Yankees. I want to hear your stories of how you got tickets, how much you paid, what you were doing during the "bloody sock" pitching performance during the 04 series, how long you've been a fan, how long your grandpa has been a fan, etc.! I'm from colorado and we're moving to boston soon and I absolutely love baseball and people don't care about it here, that's why I'm so excited to live out there in Boston! Go SOX!

I need a friend like yours! A friend with season tickets.

The tickets may the the cheap part of a red sox game experience (Ave $40-45/seat; it is one of THE highest in MLB). Add $25 for parking. Easily another $50-100 for food/drinks. Program? Souvenirs? ... Free tickets still mean a couple of hundred dollars before you get out. At times, I think it is cheaper to go to a Red Sox away game than a home game (even with transportation cost included.)

I think all of Baseball is over rated, and the players over payed.
The majority of fans that buy into this hype, appear to be Beer swilling blue collar red necks; not that theres anything wrong with that. Personally speaking, I like the game, my wife and I got tixs from our daughter last season. We took the T to Kenmore and hiked to the green shrine. Great box seats, roudy obnoxious patrons yelling and chanting, obstructed view from the constant flow of people. After the game, we headed toward Kenmore; the crowd was like a mile long snake,a pick-pockets feast.
