I appreciated your piece this morning on the Red Sox win. As a 60 year old long-suffering BoSox fan who felt profound emptiness in '67, '75, and '86, and shed more than a tear of joy in '04, '07, and now '13, your reference to the 10 year old kid who knows only success and nothing of the pain,disappointment, and despair of my contemporaries resonated strongly. My only gripe, although minor, is that you pronounced the name of the 10 year old's city ("Waltham") incorrectly. I know this because that is where I grew up.
