Rest In Peace, Earl Weaver.
As a Sox fan in the 70s and 80s I can say without reservation that I hated that sonofabitch.
It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. - A. Bartlett Giamatti
