If you are lucky enough to get something that you’ve waited your entire life for the hope is that you’ll appreciate it when it comes around. I think it’s fair to say that most Red Sox fans appreciated the hell out of the 2004 World Series win.
My Red Sox fandom has always been a big part of who I am so, while it might sound ridiculous to those who don’t get it, 2004 made a tremendous difference in my life. October 27th will always hold a special place in my heart. It changed how I am as a fan and really did make my life a bit better.
Thanks for that, Red Sox.
