As Patriots begin, change of seasons is welcome
The Patriots and Red Sox have spent much of the millennium jockeying for the top billing on the Boston sports marquee, but right now there is no comparison. It’s the Patriot Way vs. “That’s not the way we do things here.” It’s BB vs. Bobby V. It’s the California Golden Boy (Tom Brady) vs. the Texas whipping boy (Josh Beckett). It’s overflow training camp crowds vs. a specious sell-out streak. It’s, like an NFL preseason game, no contest.
