Dear Red Sox fans,
The Sox are just getting their 2008 season underway. Boston has been and always will be a baseball town — I get that, and I wouldn’t want that to change. I would, however, like to remind everyone not to forget about basketball too quickly.
In the not-too-distant past, the crack of the bat has signaled the end of basketball season for most fans in Boston. March Madness provided some fun bracket distractions, but by the time "One Shining Moment" finished playing, your thoughts turned to the Sox. Who could blame you? Unless basketball is already your passion, it was hard to get excited for a team that was more interested in ping pong balls than winning games.
