There's an ebb and flow to the sports community in Boston, with exactly one constant: if you don't take the Fans seriously, the Fans return the favor. We're emotional here, and we want a product with emotional appeal. We don't take well to mercenaries. Play the Boston way, and show a Boston attitude, and we fill your house. Don't, and we don't. Simple as that.
It's not pink-hattishness either, although some of that does happen. It's that there's a way Boston likes to present itself in the sports world. Fans reward the teams that present themselves the Boston way. Defiance, passion and fighting spirit matter a lot more than which sport is which here.
Tell me more about the relocation?
