Dear Red Sox,
You know I love you. I've loved you since 1978 when my friend Lauren introduced me to you. She had a crush on Carlton Fisk so I had a crush on Carlton Fisk. I've been with you through that season of heartbreak; the 1986 and 2003 seasons of heartbreak; but also the 2004 & 2007 seasons of absolute joy. You rock my world. But not tonight. I am turning the channel and getting into a hot, sudsy tub to soak away the memories. Then I'm going to watch Project Runway. I'll see you on Friday after a nice day off for a fresh start.
