I want to begin this FanPost Friday with a memorial. My grandmother passed away yesterday after her fight with cancer. She was one of the strongest, bravest women I knew, and she gave me the strength to go out and become the person I am today. She encouraged my dreams. When I started writing for Over the Monster a few years ago, she was so happy for me being able to do something that I had longed dreamed of doing, covering my favorite team. We lost a great one, and my world is a little less bright as a result. I miss her terribly, and want to remind all of you to hug your loved ones, because tomorrow isn’t promised. Thank you.
It’s no secret. Thursday night was awful. The offense was bad, the bullpen was bad, and it was the first time all season that the team looked truly and utterly defeated since the first series of the season. It was not fun to watch.
With that said, hope springs eternal, and getting upset about it won’t help anyone. Good moods breed good discussion, and the best way to breed a good mood and a good atmosphere is to talk about that which made us happy. When it comes to the Red Sox, what makes a Red Sox fan most happy?
The answer is simple: an awesome win.
This weekend, for FanPost Friday, your challenge is to write about the most memorable win you can recall, and why it felt so great to experience.
