I have often tried to explain why I feel the way I do about the Red Sox. I read this quote from the great singer/songwriter/guitarist James Taylor and he says it well. "As New Englanders, we identify ourselves by a number of things: maple sugar, lobsters, the leaves turning, the Boston Tea Party and the Sox," he said. "It's part of our blood." It's all about the blood. Just ask Curt Schilling.
