On the morning show again today with WEEI. The other day I talked about Wrigley and Fenway being unique places. I’m not sure if there’s a more unique sports fan than a Red Sox fan. I’ve lived in the Northeast for a long time and I’ve seen the traditional Sox fan up close. I know that the state of the Sox fan has changed since the World Series win on 2004, but this fan is still among the most intense in sports.
On a side note about doing radio in Boston the past few days. I’ve never heard more despair from the fans of a first-place team. It’s facinating.
Tell me your experiences. Who do you think is the most intense fan in sports…Eagles fans, SEC football fans, Earnhardt fans…make your case.
