The Evolution Of A British Red Sox Fan

by Dave Merry, Nuneaton, United Kingdom

It's official, I'm completely obsessed with baseball and the Red Sox. These are the words of my wife and daughter! After 15 games of my first season, I love baseball and I especially love the Red Sox. I can't believe that, at the age of 48, I've only just discovered how great baseball is. All this, despite living 3,193 miles/5,139 km away from Boston—in a country where most of the population wouldn't know one end of a bat from the other—and having no friends, family or work-mates to chat with about baseball. This is where having FenwayNation has been a big part of my new-found obsession and I do feel like I'm part of FenwayNation. All I need to do now is learn the words to the Star-Spangled Banner, and I'll feel that a part of me is American. Well, maybe not, but you get the idea.
