It has taken over a month, but I finally found a fellow Red Sox fan alive and in person here in London. I have the feeling this is only the beginning....it's an irrational belief that once the season gets going next week, Red Sox Nation will come out in numbers across the pond.
I also saw a 6 year old kid with Red Sox hat today when we were near the London eye...but it was clearly brand new, and he was from Spain, so that was a bummer. Poor kid had no clue why I was so excited....pretty sure his parents threatened to call the cops on me too.
That said, ITM has received multiple emails about establishing a London-based Red Sox fan spot. There are a few pubs around London that carry American sports, but perhaps we'll establish our own Red Sox Pub...it'll take a lot of work, and a lot of pints....but we may just get there.
ITM note: Who's worried about our pitching staff right now? Collective ERA of what seems like 13 (it's a bit lower in actuality, but not enough to make me feel good). I know, I know, it's only spring training, but don't tell me you're not at least a bit worried.
Go Sox...Go London....Go Boston. Just Go.
