Go Red Sox!

Bostonians love them!

The cost of supporting them? Not so much.

From the Globe:

Many workers, from waiters to valets, stand to make a windfall in the World Series, as does the state, which collects taxes on meals, lodging, liquor, and purchases of baseball paraphernalia.

On the losing side of the contest? Try the City of Boston and its residents, who don’t share in most of those state tax receipts but pay to put hundreds of extra police officers on the streets for security, plus extra staffing to clean the streets around Fenway and to direct traffic.

City officials declined yesterday to estimate how much the Series will cost city taxpayers. In 2004, the city paid $1.9 million for police, public works, and transportation services during the American League playoffs and World Series.

Leave me a tip on your way out of the city.

Oh, and please don’t vomit in my front yard, again.
