The other day I took the Green Line downtown to meet the Missus.
At Kenmore, a horde of Red Sox fans boarded the trolley, fresh off the Duck Boat Parade celebrating the fourth Boston Red Sox World Series Championship of the 21st Century.
And there was this one kid – maybe seven years old, I’m not good at estimating ages – who chanted over and over, “Yankees suck! Yankees suck! Yankees suck!”
Later on, the Missus and I wandered over to Boston Common and took in Lest We Forget, an unforgettable public art installation.
On October 16, 2018, German-Italian photographer and filmmaker Luigi Toscano unveiled 60 large-scale portraits of Holocaust survivors from the United States – including nine from Massachusetts – Germany, Ukraine, Israel, Russia, and Belarus – on Boston Common as part of a compelling arts and remembrance project entitled LEST WE FORGET. The exhibition will be on display through November 10, 2018.
As we read the heartbreaking stories of those amazing Holocaust survivors, two Red Sox bros walked by chanting “Yankees suck! Yankees suck!”
A couple of observations:
1) All Bostonians should go see that stunning exhibit before it departs next week.
2) You guys have to stop measuring everything against the Yankees. It’s just so stupid.
Your team is better than theirs. But they don’t care about you. Get over it.
