I recall the "best doggone team in the land" commercials WSBK used to run, the Bucky ^%&*$ Dent game (which we watched on TV in my fifth grade class!). I was smack dab in the middle of Mets Mania in '86 -- I was a freshman at Cornell university and outnumbered about 98-2 watching the WS on a community TV. I was eating dinner at my sister-in-laws while watching Petey come in from the 'pen in the playoffs and '03 I felt like Aaron )(*^&(*&^(*&^ Boone shot my dog.

    In '04 I infected my son with this Sox disease. We caught the next-to-last game of the season in BAL (my brother-in-law lives spitting distance from Camden). That game sealed the deal for him. In a 20x15 seat section of box seats the only two O's fans were my brother-in-law and nephew. My son cheered every pitch and got high-5's from everyone when the Sox scored. He can still tell you every play from the game.

    Anyway, I'm now 38 and living in Greenville, SC -- home of the Sox mid-A affiliate Greenville Drive and their new West End Park home modeled on Fenway. By day I'm a programmer (C++, C#, Ruby) and I have an affinity for numbers which will probably be apparent soon enough... I've got a BS in Elec Engr from Cornell and a MS in Biblical Studies from Gordon-Conwell. Enough background?

    Cheers,
    Andy

    Double major at Cornell Engr school? Good luck! Not a game I'd want to play anymore...

    Combine cruddy weather with the academic stress and an ample supply of steep sided gorges... there's a reason why Ithaca, NY has the highest per-capita suicide rate in the nation.

    Im Back...Sorta

    Hey guys, Im back! well, it's not the old BoSoxFan, im actually his son... let me catch you up to speed...he used to talk of this place like family...
    when he left...or the reason he left...was because he got a divorce from my mum and he just didnt have any time on his hands, and he asked me if i wanted the account... at the time i said no, but i was in school and didnt have time to devote, but that was quite a ways back... im out of school now and i'd really love to voice my opinion and it looks like some people that were here when my dad was here are still here so that's great!
    NESN, Thank you...

    fair enough. you're not breaking any rules on user names or anything so welcome aboard bosoxfan 2.0.

    we do a series thread for each series the red sox play, care to make one for the one against the nationals?

    Welcome to the forum. The only reason I'm making this (somewhat creepy) post is to comment that I'm 18, so we're close in age.
