"Just before they shut the doors on the full flight from Tampa to Boston, a JetBlue agent stepped into the plane. It seems that the passenger I'd nosed out of the last seat really needed to get to Boston and
had a proposition. Even though, the agent announced, she knew that a Boston-bound flight was probably a Red Sox stronghold,
There was practically a stampede of passengers trying to be the first to exit, and
I flew back across the aisle from the greatest closer in baseball -- and maybe aviation too."...
- One commenter wrote the following:
Impetuous Beantowners should be ashamed of themselves. Mariano Rivera has 47 lifetime(probably higher) saves vs Red Sox. The entire plane should have stayed put
. There was a time when a "grudge" meant something."....
