Little drawled: “After spending several years up there in that part of the country, I think I’ve got it figured out. When you are from that part of the country, your summers are so short, and your winters are so long. Just imagine being cooped up like that. You get cabin fever. And then when the weather gets nice, you’re always in a traffic jam. That will make you pessimistic.”
I think there is quite a bit of inferiority complex at play in Boston.
I wish he hadn't wanted to go to the ballpark any more in 2003 either. Eff him. It's no shocker that the Sox suddenly got a lot more successful when they didn't have a gibbering moron in the manager's seat, in the long unrelenting tradition of the club up until 2004.
??? What in god's name does Boston have to feel inferior about? Taken as a whole, they have the most successful sports teams, a dynamic forward looking 21st century economy, some of the world's best hospitals and universities, fine museums, symphonies and other cultural attributes, a highly educated population, a beautiful local environment and a rich history.
But how does it compare to your home city of Washington, D.C.?
Seriously, he was pathetic as the manager, only 188 wins in two seasons is a ####### joke.
I've always thought he did a pretty good job in some pretty turbulent circumstances; the ownership change, the Joe Kerrigan shitshow...Smiling Joe is right though that I wouldn't mind a little acknowledgement that he made the wrong call that night.
“A five-game winning streak and a five-game losing streak started to feel the same way,” Little said. “I wasn’t really wanting to go to the ballpark anymore.”
Regarding Little, he would be a lot better off if he just admitted he made a colossal managerial blunder, perhaps the most colossal I have ever seen in a post-season game, that cost his team a chance to go to the world series and be done with it.
Plus the architecture is amazing. Don't know what Kevin is talking about.
Oh God, I forgot about that quote. eff him even more.
There's more to the architecture than just the Mall area
