This volume in the Popular Culture and Philosophy series delves into the tragic and redemptive history of the Boston Red Sox baseball franchise. Drawing on philosophers from Aristotle to Sartre, chapters range from issues of faith and spirituality to tragedy, irony, existentialism, Sabermetrics, and the infamous "curse of the Bambino." With an emphasis on "Red Sox Nation" — the community of Red Sox fans across the globe — the book connects important philosophical ideas with one of the most storied teams in the history of Major League Baseball. The chapters make complex philosophical arguments easy to understand while providing an insider’s knowledge of the hometown team. All but one of the authors in this volume are all Red Sox fans who comment on their team philosophically. There's even a Yankee fan’s perspective! With a foreword by Dick Bresciani, vice president and official historian of the Boston Red Sox, this book provides a unique philosophical experience for the die-hard Red Sox fan.

The exodus of the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers to the west after the 1957 season left a gaping hole in the fabric of the New York sports community. In 1962, the New York Mets stepped in to fill the void – an impossible task for any expansion team, but especially for this band of lovable losers in a city spoiled by the success of the New York Yankees. Led by the inimitable Casey Stengel, the ’62 Mets set the mark for futility in major league baseball, winning a mere 40 games while losing 120. It didn’t get much better in the ensuing years – until 1969. It was then that the Miracle Mets, just two years removed from losing 101 games, shocked the world, defeating the powerhouse Baltimore Orioles in the World Series, 4 games to 1. Seventeen years later, the bad boys of ’86 pulled off one of the most remarkable comebacks in sports history when they defeated the cursed Boston Red Sox to win the Mets’ second world championship. And in 2000, the Amazin’ Mets fought their way into a Subway Series showdown with the crosstown rival Yankees. Along the way, throughout the ups and downs, the cast of characters, both Hall of Famers and underachievers, has rarely failed to entertain. Through vintage and modern photos, baseball cards, memorable stories, and sports trivia,101 Reasons to Love the Metscelebrates this one-of-a-kind team.

A promising love that is quickly shattered poisons Samantha's heart and introduces a confusion that causes her to believe the unimaginable. Her following actions, spurred by her undaunted denial, become the catalyst for a fallen angel to search for his own distorted peace, but his selfish desire for vengeance creates a grim drama that Samantha becomes an unwilling part of. Many characters become woven into this tale, all with a tainted past of their own. A disorganized group of untamed Glorious Hunters are seeking a girl named Symphony who has made a lonely home in the desert in her attempt to hide away from them. Ultimately, the Hunters track her down and force her to run into desperation. Thorns, one of these such Hunters, becomes sidetracked by a more important endeavor and commands his faction to rest their spirits while he refocuses his efforts towards a greater goal, one that can strengthen their chances at controlling the battle between them and the Lost Sentry, whom they call their unfortunate prey. While an old Native-American raindancer is meditating amongst Angel Trees, and a friendly girl of unnatural blood named April Red is sliding small knives into her long black boots, and Sovereign Ashley is leading his 4th Manes in a search for a legendary book, and a priest is contemplating his last disturbing visitor, and the Scholars of Triumph are rewriting the future, a sudden snow falls in a holy garden where a rainbow descends to darkness.

This book is unique in that it recounts history as it was being made and offers a special intimacy and perspective. Not a behind-the-scenes expose about members, money, and power, but a story of golf's greatest showcase event and the players who have created cherished memories over the last five decades.
