Go Red Sox.
I have three pairs of red socks. One for each day of the series against the Yankees. I love being an October Sox fan. I make no claims for them unless they play against the Yankees or it's the post season. I would never root for them against the Mets.
I am sure that real Sox fans would get annoyed by my carpetbagging attitude but I really don't mind. Just be content that somewhere in Brooklyn there's an Englishman walking about with redsocks on in your honor.
And the best thing? I'm going to spend Sunday night at the wedding of the two biggest (yet socially acceptable) Yankee fans I know. He has been heard to question which is the more important, his wedding or the final game at Fenway.
I can't wait to see how it mixes up!
