"I was a common guy in Ukraine who didn't know anything about baseball, but baseball always fascinated me. I don't know why, but that's true. I loved to read Stephen King's books, and when I read "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon", I bought video game "MVP Baseball 2005" and that's how I learned the simple rules of baseball. Of course, I was playing for the Red Sox, but I still didn't know much about baseball. Then, in 2007 I bought the book "Faithful" by King and O'Nan, and that's when I started to follow baseball. The Red Sox won their second World Series, I finally got speedy and cheap Internet in my home, and my love to baseball started. Later I found torrent trackers and was able to watch some baseball games. In 2010, I started my own Red Sox blog. In 2011, I subscribed to MLB.TV and from that time I watched most games live, even though most of them start at 2 AM here (7:10 PM ET = 2:10 AM our time). My blog is growing and now I post not only some game recaps, as early, I make analysis of every transaction and all important news. Sometimes I write historical articles and now I'm working on 2nd number of my Red Sox journal . To follow Red Sox that close, I read many Red Sox and MLB-related sites. As for my favourite players - I adore Pedro Martinez (his biography was my first article in my journal) and Nomar. Now, I like Pedey and Daniel Nava (for his unbelievable story), but my really favourite player is Pedro. I loved Ichiro, even if he didn't played for the Sox, and was very sad when he was traded to Yankees. Also I cried when Johnny Pesky passed - he was a great person, even if he was guilty in Enos Slaughter's deciding run in 1946 WS. My favourite moment? Of course, the Sox 2004 playoff run, I watch the highlights from it every time. I love to watch Pedro's gems - 1999 All-Star game, 17K game vs. Yankees and so on. And Nava's first pitch granny against Joe Blanton which I was able to see live, not in replays."
Amazing. This is why we love this team—all over the world.
