Boston Red Sox
The past few years I've gotten back into watching baseball. I love the World Series and playoffs most of all. Being from New York, I have a natural dislike for anything Boston. As a Mets fan, I don't particularly hate the Red Sox. After all, we beat them when we faced them in the World Series in 1986. They are more of a Yankee nemesis. This year, they have shown themselves to be a very scrappy team. In a show of solidarity, each of the players has grown an unruly beard. Most teams don't allow their players to look like Brooklyn hipsters. It seems to work for the Red Sox. I actually think it's pretty interesting. At the moment, they are mowing down anyone in their way. I've been wondering if the team will all shave their beards off once the season ends. Win or lose, I have a feeling they will.
