He's Just Throwing It Out There ...

"To whom it may concern: Red Sox fans disgraced themselves on Johnny Damon's return. As much as I hate Damon now that he's a Yankee like everyone else, we had one game to show Damon our appreciation for four years he spent in Boston. We play New York 19 times, and we couldn't cheer him once and then boo him the 18 times after that. However, you guys at Dirt Dogs know this already. The real reason why I'm writing to you is that, as a site that has daily and mass contact with Red Sox Nation, I think you should begin a campaign to help Red Sox fans get it right the second time around. The next time the Yankees come to town, Red Sox fans should smarten up and give him the standing ovation he deserved. After that, we may boo him as we wish, but he deserves one standing ovation from the fans. I thank you for taking the time to read my e-mail and considering my idea."   -- Boston Dirt Dogs e-mailer Mike Fulton
