The Zen Sox?

I’m glad someone finally took the time to write a book about the Red Sox-Yankee Rivalry… Insert sarcasm here.

This one is a little different, though. It’s by a SCSU philosophy professor who says the Evil Empire is all about Western Philosophy while Red Sox fans are a bunch of zen Eastern types. While I generally agree that Sox fans are superior to Yankees fans, I can’t help but think about guys named Sean beating the shit out of each other in Southie bars and old men named Pat crying into their beer all season long and wonder how zen those dudes really are.

I also imagine that if she tries to teach her book — The Red Sox and Philosophy — as part of her curriculum, there will be more than a few brawls.
