Being the unfortunate sports fan who roots for the Boston Red Sox and the New York Jets, this has not been an easy Fall. And with the Broncos and Patriots up next on the Jets schedule, it’s only going to get worse. So when droves of customers came in on Wednesday in their Bruins gear, it was a welcome fresh start to my sports world. Bring on hockey!
Good luck to the B’s this season and remember to stop by Wakefield Liquors for all your sports watching and tailgating needs.
