The request we’re sending to bloggers of all 30 teams this spring is a simple one: What are the 10 best things about being a fan of your favorite team? What features of the franchise have you excited for opening day and what keeps you coming back year after year?
As we near the end of our little experiment, we’re glad to hear that so many of you are enjoying the ride. Up next is our old pal Kris Liakos of Walkoff Walk fame.

With a fallout zone that reaches from the Canadian borders of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine to hazier western and southern borders that mingle with the outer reaches of Yankees territory, you’re hard pressed to find a more geographically diverse (and dispersed) fan base. People in New Hampshire are very different from people in Maine. (Just read the bumper stickers on their trucks.) People in Massachusetts are very different from people in Rhode Island. (Just ask their therapist and bookie, respectively.) Yet despite all the differences, there is one uniting thread: Everybody roots for the Red Sox.
