A Red Line study in contrasts: Bible reader and imbibers enroute to Sox Park

On the super-crowded, delayed Red Line train en route to the Sox game Saturday, we saw a study in contrasts.

A 40-year-old guy studies the book of Leviticus in the Bible. While a
few feet away, two 20-somethings imbibe Miller Lite tall boys encased
in brown paper bags.

Next to them, a mom and teenage daughter clutch their Williams Sonoma
shopping bags while sniffing their disapproval.

And not about the
Leviticus reader.

Meanwhile, the affable operator keeps announcing: “No room, no worries. There’s an immediate follower behind us. If you don’t fit, don’t force it.”

Good times. That was the 14-4 Saturday victory over the Yankees.
