Old woman dies, sets off semantic argument and argues about Sugar Bowl as well
by Bob Timmermann
The headline on MLB.com reads "Lifelong Red Sox fan dies at 112". But the Boston Red Sox franchise didn't start until 1901, which is 106 years ago.
So did Kathryn Gemme root for the Boston Braves (they didn't use that name in the 19th Century) before from 1894-1900? Did she switch over immediately in 1901? Did she teach the Dropkick Murphys how to sing "Tessie"? Did she start the early 20th Century Red Sox discussion group "Sons of Olaf Henriksen"?
