Medfield dad Douglas Stephens has been overcome by waves of nostalgia while watching his favorite Boston sports teams underperform, just as they did during the formative years of his life.
“It’s just like my teenage years in the early 90s—I still fondly remember punching my TV,” reflected Stephens, wiping away a single tear as he turned off the most recent Red Sox loss.
“The Pats missed the playoffs, the Celtics are barely above .500, and the Bruins don’t have a star. I can only hope the Red Sox keep losing and go on an 86-year World Series drought again. That way my kid can have a heartbreaking childhood just like I did. Boy do I miss it.”
