The borders of Red Sox Nation

New England is solidly Red Sox country, with one exception: Connecticut, with its proximity to New York City, is the only state with divided loyalties. Where precisely though is the border that divides Connecticut between Red Sox and Yankee country? This NY Times article answers the question. In a not-quite scientific study, it was determined that the broder can be approximated by drawing a line from Old Saybrook through New Britain to Canaan (with a few bulges on either side near New Britain). Thankfully, the Berkshires are solidly in Red Sox Nation (whew!). It's nice to see Hinsdale, MA get a mention in the article, by the way.
