I love it how people don't post on here when Red Sox win, but will when they lose...




Is being a Red Sox fan similar to being a Jayhawk fan? I mean I know we're all Jayhawks here on this board (most of us anyways), but when KU loses we really hear it from KSUckers or whoever.

Yep. I've always compared being a Red Sox fan to being a Jayhawk fan.

(So let's hope the Jayhawks win after a long draught).

Thats funny becasue I have always thought BoSox fan was much like Duke fan. Full of themselves with a strong sense of entitlement. Jayhawks are nothing like the Red Sox. How insulting.

I would more compare Duke to the New York Yankees.
Kansas to the Bo Sox.

Boston has had many great teams, and how long did they go without winning the World Series. It pains me that KU has not won a championship since 1988...even though its not nearly the length of time it took Boston to win a WS. Tons of tradition here at KU, and 2 National Titles (4 if you include Helms). I can definitely see the similarities.

I was thinking more along the lines of the fans attitudes than the franchises themselves. That said I still don't want my beloved Jayhawks compared to the Sox, Yankees, or any other damn team. The Hawks stand alone as far as I am concerned.

When are Red Sox fans full of entitlement ? I'm pretty sure they had no confidence in their teams whatsoever up until 2004 (I'm not worried about the Sox right now).

I hope the Indians don't stay in a drought like the Sox did. Although the Indians drought is not that bad, they last won a WS in 1948. From 1954-1994 there were no postseason apperances by the Tribe. In 95' and 97' they won the ALCS then lost in the WS. It's been a rough drought for Eric Wedge as well. When he took over in 2002 they had made the playoffs 6 out of the last 7 years. They didn't return until this year. I hope this is the year the Tribe can finally get it done. I hope this doesn't turn into another disappointment like 95, 97, and 98. Even if the Tribe don't make the WS, they made a great run and I'm very pleased to see the improvements they've made.

Duke has done more in the last 90 years than Boston. Much more. And Dook fans don't whine when people tell them they hate them. They know they're hated and they don't care. Red Sox fans kind of blink as if to say, "B-B-B-But we're not the Yankees."

Terrible comparison. Red Sox fans built their reputation off of 86 years of futility and the fact that they kept getting their a$$ handed to them while their rival went ahead and won 26 World Series. That'd be like Mizzou winning 26 NCAA football or basketball championships while we went on an 86 year drought and kept losing to them when it mattered in the tournament or bowl games.

Rooting for the Red Sox has become cliche and is supposedly some anti-establishment statement (since Yankees have been the establishment). I've never had any sympathy for Boston fans since the Celtics won damn near 15 NBA titles and recently the Patriots have dominated. If you want to talk about destitute sports fans, look no further than Cleveland fans. We have the longest drought of any city with 3 sports teams.
