New Sox Met By Chill And A Broken Down 'T'

Welcome To Beantown!
A bunch of new Carmine Hose were on their Hub Acclimation Tour today, and what better way to fully understand the uniqueness of Boston than to be greeted by sub-zero wind chills and a broken down trolley line? Yes, newcomers David Ross and Jonny Gomes, were passing out ticket vouchers and Dunkin' Munchkins in the freezing cold—far removed from their Arizona and Florida homes. The weather also ditched their planned Freedom Trail tour. But the frozen icing on the cake was their encounter with the 'T'. Their Green Line excursion was nixed due to a fire on the famed trolley line that shuttles fans to Fenway. Hey, they might as well get used to our world-renowned 'Vapid Transit' system sooner rather than later. As Mayor Menino might say, "It's part of their transmission period from one team to another."
