It's real, everyone. Ohhh so real. I've never seen anything like Red Sox mania in my life! Furniture stores giving out free furniture if the Red Sox win the world series, restaurants giving away free food if they win just a normal game. People paying thousands of dollars to go to a single game. When the season starts, it's nothing but Red Sox, all the time. If you've ever seen Fever Pitch, it's just like that. I have to say though, I do admire the stalwartness of the fans. Even if they lose, the fans are true.
