2 Outfield Tickets… $60
Favorite player’s t-shirt… $25
“Official MLB” hat… $30
Being a fan… NOT PRICELESS
That’s right. “Red Sox Nation” is no longer a general term for all Red Sox fans. No, now we need to make it official by spending an additional $15-250. This has been going on for a few years and it just keeps getting more ridiculous. Being a fan and consumerism are not the same thing. Being an “official” member of Red Sox Nation is meaningless. No, that’s not entirely true. It means you have more money than me. Congratulations.
The way I see it, loving the Red Sox is sort of like loving coffee. You can brew your coffee at home where nobody sees it and still love it more than someone who goes to Starbucks just to be seen drinking it. In terms of the Red Sox, you don’t need to buy the most expensive merchandise (or any for that matter) or belong to a special club. You know if you are a fan and you shouldn’t have to prove it. Anyone who tells you anything different is wrong.
