There are two things I miss from New England: shooting with the New England Gunbloggers, and NESN television for all your Red Sox watchin' needs. I was going to drop my fiber-to-the-curb and get Dish Network, which lets me get NESN, even in Atlanta.
And then John Henry and the Red Sox owners went and screwed over Terry Francona and brought in the worst manager since Joe Kerrigan. Here's a little Red Sox history quiz for Henry and the money boys: name a manager who won more World Series for the Sox than Francona. It's a trick question; none of the 43 other managers won more World Series for the team.
And so I figured that my blood pressure was already high enough, and I'm not getting NESN. Great work, owners. Makes me long for the days of Buddy LeRoux.
Off topic but important: if you're a Red Sox fan, you should be reading A Large Regular.
