Walking home tonight on Mass Ave., I passed a girl, about 9 years old, wearing a pink Red Sox hoodie. Her parents walking behind, she was engaged in deep and serious conversation with a boy, perhaps younger; could have been her brother, cousin, or a friend.
They were walking in the opposite direction, and as we passed, I heard a moment of their conversation. In that very serious voice kids get when they're trying to act grown-up, the girl said, "Well, if they played football on ice, then..."
Well, that's only the hockey is a better sport than football discussion, isn't it? I've said that a hundred times myself, if I've said it once...
She may have been wearing pink, but the girl knew her stuff!
