Stephen King reading during Red Sox playoff loss

While I saw this shot of Stephen King curling up with a good book during game four of the ALCS on multiple ESPN talkinghead-fests earlier today, I had assumed the game was at least halfway over when said footage was shot.  (An almost-explainable time frame which would have allowed Mr. King to retain his super-fan status, considering many of the Fenway faithful were making their way out of the park by the sixth inning.)  But according to the SportsByBrooks commentary accompanying said photo, King was humming through “When Will There Be Good News?” no later than the third inning.

A top-tier fan reading “When Will There By Good News?” before one third of a humiliating playoff loss is even completed?  Suddenly, and inexplicably, news of the famous Citgo sign at Fenway Park catching on fire seems like a rather tame omen for Red Sox Nation.
