New England is a remarkable hub for sports fans with recurring championships in all genres but I am monogamous when it comes to sports.
My heart belongs to baseball.
I was in the stands at Fenway Park for Game 1 of the American League Championship Series and the vibe was electric. The opening ceremony was grand and touching. The Green Monster was draped in a huge American flag and was the backdrop for tributes to heroes of the Boston Marathon Bombings. And Dave Roberts, famous for his 2004 post-season steal against the Yankees, threw out the first pitch.
