These are the times that try men’s souls. In the course of our nation’s history, the people of Boston have rallied bravely whenever the Sox have been threatened. Today, a new crisis has arisen. The Boston Red Sox organization has changed the team’s logo. The “Hanging Sox” has bumped the (redesigned) “Circle Sox” to alternative status, and the cherished “B” has been relegated to third place, even to be supplanted by the “Hanging Sox” on alternative home and road caps. Will it ever return? Citizens of Boston, don’t you think it’s a scandal how the “B” that got us through the dark decades, the 1986 heartbreak, the 1993 outrage, has been kicked ‘neath the streets of Boston? Fight the logo change! Get the “Hanging Sox” off our players’ caps! The “B”, the “B” must return!
