    sox

    Man: "When I think of Boston, I think of the tea party and I think of sox, of course"

    What is the meaning of "sox" here?

    Thanks.

    Susi: Is there really an "s" on the end of Sox? I thought they were just called the Red Sox. (Sox = socks)

    Maiabuela: They're a baseball team.

    An, oh, how I loathe them.

    The Official Site of The Boston Red Sox | redsox.com: Homepage

    I grew up a Mets fan.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
