'For a young man to have that level of depth':
Collin Kelly is a remarkable kid whose honor-the-veterans exploits
remind me of my 5-year-old nephew, who also dons camouflage jackets and loves all things vets. Asked what he wanted to do on Valentine's Day, he told my brother he wanted to bring valentine cards to military veterans at local VA hospitals. My brother was stunned and moved. So off they went to a local VA hospital, where grateful aging vets were given Valentine's Day cards. True story. ... And so is Collin's.
'Substitute AP for Boston Media and Tet Offensive for 1978':
The Sox break out of a slump, big time.
Their up-and-down, early-year antics remind me of this classic 13-month-old blog entry
from a wise fan:
"Substitute AP for Boston Media and Tet Offensive for 1978 or any other infamous Red Sox collapse that the Boston media will invoke whenever things appear to be going bad, and you should see the parallels."
Not saying the Sox are going to repeat. There's something missing on this team. But it's still early.
