Jim Caple Lays Into Red Sox Nation

ESPN.com’s Jim Caple just wrote a great piece about “Red Sox Nation.” Certainly worth a read. Some great quotes from the article:

“Red Sox fans, sadly, have taken over the mantle as the most obnoxious fans in sports.”

“As soon as the Red Sox won the 2004 World Series, Boston fans took on a swaggering, entitled persona, acting as if they alone invented sports fandom and behaving as if nothing else in baseball mattered but them.”

“I would say that Red Sox fans need a humbling collapse — say, blowing a 14½ game lead in the standings or a 3-0 lead in the ALCS — but then we would just have to listen to them moan about that for another couple decades.”
