Billy Dunn is a paunchy veteran cop from the streets of Dorchester. Jonathan Papelbon is a strapping young fireballer from the deep South.

The former protects the Red Sox bullpen at Fenway Park. The latter protects Red Sox leads. In the course of their work, the unlikely pair have formed an improbable friendship and originated a good-luck ritual that brings thousands of Fenway’s bleacher creatures to their feet

This is one the the feel-good stories of the year as far as I’m concerned. It’s rare to hear about the non-players of the game. The detail cops and the groundscrew are, IMHO, just as important as the players.
