Only in Red Sox Nation

Only in Red Sox Nation is it a "holiday" when the moving vans leave from Fenway to head south for spring training, fondly known as Truck Day.  Truck Day is even sponsored, by Jet Blue, just like seemingly everything now related to the Red Sox.  If you didn't know, there's practically a parade, with organized events to send them off.
If you don't believe me, check out this video, if for no other reason than to see Heidi Watney do The Dougie.  Make sure you see the kids on top of the snowbank, who've summed up perfectly how we all feel right now.

So for those of us who bleed Red Sox red, here's a nice NESN article to catch you up, fill you in or act as a primer for the uninitiated. http://www.nesn.com/2011/02/fenway-park-nearly-got-retractable-roof-in-1960s-and-eight-other-red-sox-thoughts.html

That was cool. Here in San Diego we don't even know they're leaving town. Heck, I don't think we pay attention the first full week of Spring Training.
