Shop on Better World Books


For 86 years, Redox fans have been hungry. Generation after generation has watched and hoped and prayed for victory. And generation after generation has turned away utterly despondent-after the crushing new-misses of 1946 (when the Sox lost the World Series in 7games), '48 (lost a one game play-off to Cleveland), '49 (heartbreak to the Yankees), '67 (again, lost the World Series in 7), '75 (and again, lost the World Series in 7), Bucky in '78, Buckner in '86, Boone in 2003-then come back the next spring, wounded, yet hopeful again. The losing, the angst, the self-flagellation became so codified that it had even developed marketing names.
