Jeter Dater Reveals She Wore Sox Gear Into Yankee Stadium
And That's Good Enough for Us

“I didn’t really understand the rivalry until I went to a game [at Yankee Stadium]…I went to Tufts so… and my friend told me I had to wear Red Sox gear... It was one of the best New York experiences of my life [being a Red Sox fan in Yankee Stadium] and I loved it. I had a hat, I had a Red Sox t-shirt, they knew who I was. It was pretty interesting.” -- 7.19.07, Jessica Biel, Regis and Kelly

Formal RSN Prez Entries to Be Submitted Today on Team Website

Election Updates: On last night's pregame show, Tina Cervasio did a segment with a candidate Larry Lucchino named on Friday, Rob Crawford, who had a guitar and played a little Red Sox rah-rah song. Later in the game broadcast, Remy said he read a bunch of applications yesterday and one caught his eye from, surprise, Rob Crawford (who Rem didn't realize was also on the pregame show). What a coincidence! And Rob apparently came up with the idea to give away four season tickets to those in need. What a great idea and good to know Rob had access to the four season tickets... with a little help from Papa Red Sox. RemDawg also mentioned last night that he does indeed know who Bill Simmons is and that "some thought he was serious" in his rant against the sports guy Tuesday night.

Fan Not Happy with Swanson's 'Pink Hat' Answer

"I have a comment about your most recent interview with Rick Swanson, the would be president of Red Sox Nation. I was irritated by his response to the question about the "Pink Hat Crowd". The pink hat crowd does not (only) apply to women! It refers to the "new" red sox fan who goes to Fenway because the team is doing well and it seems like the trendy thing to do, but really have no interest in the game itself. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH GENDER!!!!

"I have been a Red Sox fan all my life. I cried at age 9 in 1978, went to game 7 of the ALCS in 1986 with my Dad (a season ticket holder), was crushed 1986 watching game 7 of the World Series with my now husband in college, spent my 10th wedding anniversary watching Jason Varitek stuff his glove into A-rod's face in the Right Field Grandstands in July 2004, cried on the phone with my Dad in October 2004 when they finally won it all and just last night took my 9 and 7 year old DAUGHTERS to their first game. (Yes, they wore pink hats and looked great!) Tell Mr. Swanson that back in the day there were many of us in the stands watching and loving the Sox just like he was, and his attitude about us "ladies" certainly does not represent me or my many female friends and relatives who ARE Red Sox Nation." -- 7.19.07, Tina Connelly, a real member of the real Red Sox Nation
