Some may say that Red Sox nation starts in Revere.
Could there have been a more enthusiastic Red Sox fan than the late Mayor and City Councilor George Colella?
On opening day, John Coyne of the Fenway Riggers of Revere coordinated the unfurling of the American Flag with the help of more than 100 people with 30 from Revere. He has performed this task for the past 12 years.
What this baseball season will hold is anyone’s guess.
However, as Red Sox fans, while we are used to being disappointed, on Monday, our team won the home opener and we are in first place in the American League East.
Who knows, maybe it will be 2004 all over again, but the season is still young.
