Brave Enough Behind Enemy Lines

This is my 900th post (I'm 90% of the way to 1000), and I thought I'd dedicate this to a magazine that I received last Friday that I was a part of.

I mentioned a while back that I was interviewed for a magazine for those Red Sox fans who are members of "Red Sox Nation." Well, I finally got a copy of the magazine, and I was very pleased with how it all turned out.

It's really a nice magazine, called "Red Sox Nation 2007 Annual: Red Sox Rooters." Editor Jerry Spar was kind enough to send it to me (even though I'm not a member). It is dedicated to the fans of Red Sox Nation, with all kinds of articles about Red Sox fans from not just Boston and New England, but all over the world. On page 32, there's an article about us brave souls who live in the New York area (called "Behind Enemy Lines"). And on that page is a photo of Yours Truly, with the skyline of Manhattan behind me. (I attempted to put the actual photo up here on my site but for some unknown reason I could not.)

I am also quoted in the article, and I'm glad they used what I said about the Riviera ALCS Game 7 in 2003, and in 2004 also. They also used a nice plug I gave to Professor Thom's as well.

Also inside the magazine they have listing of some of the best bars around the US to watch the Red Sox in. They gave a nice article about Thom's (with a picture of my pal Chris in there), and some other fine places in NYC to watch them. But interestingly, no mention of The Riviera at all. Not that I'm complaining or anything...

There's also a section for Red Sox bloggers on the web, and some of my friends on the web, such as Cormac Eklof of Dublin, Jere Smith, and Joanna Hicks were interviewed. They listed their sites, and included my "Brooklyn Sox Fan" site on That was nice of them, but what, no mention of The Mighty Quinn Media Machine? I'll have to have a talk with them about this at some point.

Just kidding about that. I was really glad to be a part of the magazine, and they did a really nice job with it. Good job, guys.

We may be the Craziest Part Of Red Sox Nation, because we're here in NYC:

But, living here has its' advantages;

Like a 24 Hour Transit System;

& Red Sox Themed Bars opened to 4:00AM, as MA only allows to 2:00AM

NO real, self-respecting Red Sox Bar, would dare to have a portrait of Roger Clemens in a Red Sox Jersey. Hence, "The Riviera" is TRULY NOT a real Red Sox Bar.
