Tales From the City

Overheard before Game 6 of the ALCS

In this town, not everyone is a sports fan.

My wife, Jenn, and I were fortunate enough to attend Game 6 of the ALCS and watch the Red Sox clinch the pennant. We had parked at the Prudential Center and joined the crowd of hundreds, dressed in Red Sox attire, for the short walk to Fenway Park. While on Boylston Street, two women were walking against the crowd. One said, “Oh, there must be a Red Sox game tonight.” The other replied, “Yeah, I guess it’s a big game.”
