So I'm in a bit of a quandry. I've been accepted to a pretty good law school located in the greater Boston area, and I'm leaning towards making the journey out to New England.
"That's not a problem, Wraith," you must be thinking. "You should be happy! What a wonderful opportunity to sell your soul! Don't be an asshole!" Well, I am happy and grateful, but my problem is this: I have never really spent long amount of time far from Halo Nation. I went to Stanford for undergrad, but (as we've discussed before) that part of the Bay Area is so split between Giants territory and a mere handful of A's fans that I may well have been patrolling the Neutral Zone looking for errant Romulans.
What is so personally frightening is that I may be going from that relatively calm to the heart of the monster, the very center of Red Sox Nation.
My question for those of you who live far from Angel Stadium is how best to deal with the distance from our beloved team. How do you watch the broadcasts (please tell me there's some other way besides MLB.tv)? If you live in an area nearby one of the other 29 major league clubs, what is the most effective way to deal with the sometimes-hostile fans of other teams? Perhaps more importantly, how do you cope with the emotional pain imposed by the sad separation (perhaps I may be exaggerating)?
If any of you live in the greater Boston area, your help would be greatly appreciated.
