On a personal note, I’m a Boston native and a loyal fan to all our local sports teams (Sox, Pats, Celtics, and Bruins). I have been a Red Sox season ticket holder since 2002 and have been to some of the most historic games in Boston sports history like the NBA finals in 1984 and 1986, the snow game at Foxboro Stadium, the A-Rod vs. V-Tek game in 2004, and the World Series in 2004, 2007 and 2013.
