Romance Between Red Sox and Nation?

"Valentine's Day is one of the unofficial holidays of Red Sox Nation, right up there with Opening Day and October 27. It's no surprise that this year, it occurs a day after the team's equipment truck left Fenway Park for Fort Myers and spring training. For the relationship between the Red Sox and their fans resembles a romance.

"This isn't the superficial, saccharine-sweet kind of romance that Valentine's Day currently celebrates. For that, go to New York. No support is more skin-deep than the pinstriped passion for the Yankees..."

"The Red Sox succeed in attracting and keeping fans because their relationship, like all good romances, evolves and stays fresh. New Englanders never know how their team will surprise them, from winning a four-team pennant race on the last day of the regular season to losing a game when a ball dribbles past an infielder's ankles to dropping the first three games of a championship series -- and ultimately prevailing." -- 2.14.06, Rich Tornio, The Daily Item
