Peter DeMarco writes a nice story about how much the Red Sox still mean to New England even with the Patriots success. If anyone outside of Boston is wondering if this town is changing sports priorities, then just check out the quotes below:

"For one brief moment, it was the Patriots' day," said Regan while sipping a beer at The Fours sports bar near North Station the evening after the parade. "But you know what? Now we're back to the Red Sox. Today was crazy. Today was great. But it wasn't the Sox."

"What I think it comes down to is that nobody's grandfather went to their grave cursing the Patriots," said Michael Rutstein, publisher of Boston Baseball magazine. "The Patriots just don't go that deep into New England's psyche. No one has ever tried to write about football as a metaphor for life. You can pick up hundreds of books that do it for baseball."

"I said to him: `It's funny. The Patriots won, and everything is great. But when the Red Sox lose, it just doesn't go away, does it?' "

How many more days until Spring Training, Opening Day and the Red Sox parade?
