Sox Fan Expresses Thanks For Past But Keeps Eyes To The Future
BOSTON (CBS) – As members of Red Sox nation come to terms with all the changes brought about this week, one fan took to the streets around Fenway Park with a message.
Chris Boeur is an Allston native who says he’s been a Sox fan his entire life.
On Thursday, the 28-year-old made a sign with cardboard and magic markers that thanked “Jon, John & Jonny” for all the good times at the park.
“It’s sad to see them go,” Boeur said. “But I like to stay positive.”
His sign asked people to honk as they drove by – and many did.
“We have to get the best value that we possibly can with future prospects to rebuilding the team,” he explained. “Unfortunately this year, it’s a bridge year.”
Where that bridge leads, Boeur admits, is largely out of fans’ hands.
But by standing on a corner and thanking his idols for their hard work, he feels like a vibrant part of the fanbase.
