One of my proudest moments as a Red Sox fan came when Bill Buckner — he of the monolithic eyebrows and 1986 World Series infamy — got a standing O on opening day at Fenway during his short-lived 1990 return to the Sox.
Now we’ll have a chance to give him love whenever we feel like driving our drunken asses to Brockton. Because Buckner has just been named manager of the Rox.
I’m already planning to don the celebratory fake eyebrows and take in a game. Who’s with me?
