To my good friend and huge Sox fan James Rowe, who scored twice recently for his high school team in Washington, D.C. Thanks as well to the Sox season ticket holder who gave James two tickets to Friday’s game. James and his mom were headed out to Chicago last weekend because of the death of James’ grandfather. James got onto the flight decked out in Sox gear. Another passenger, a Sox fan and STH, started talking to James and handed him two tickets for Friday night. What a nice gesture by the Sox fan during what was a pretty crummy week for a ninth grader.
