Know how I know he's a real fan? Because he's wearing a Fenway Park T-shirt with Red Sox and Yankees logos on it (I think I bought that for my dad last year). He CARES about this rivalry, and will not rest until the Evil Empire has been vanquished. Hardcore.
This video was delivered from heaven on June 14, when the Boston Red Sox had an 8.5 game lead on the second place New York Yankees. Let the record show that five weeks later, Boston's lead in the East has shrunk drastically...by a whopping 1/2 game. Morale of the story? Chill out, my fellow Sox fans. This negative energy helps no one.
Also, it always tickles my special place when fans completely write off players who are battling through bad slumps. Last year it was Coco Crisp, this year Julio Lugo and J.D. Drew. Was Lugo absolutely painful to watch in the first half? Absolutely. Is Drew's lack of power a disappointment thus far? Without a doubt. But you know what? They're not going anywhere (and Lugo in particular has improved greatly at the plate), so again, relax and enjoy the fact that you're rooting for a first-place team.
