Last year Kevin Levin, still smarting from seeing his Philadelphia Phillies go down to defeat in the 2009 World Series to the New York Yankees, relocated from Virginia to the greater Boston area, where he quickly embraced the Red Sox to such an extent that he may well have strangled that ball club, which has never been the same. To make things worse, the New England Patriots took notice of Kevin’s presence and soon found themselves on the short end of the score in Super Bowl XLVI … to the New York Giants. It is rumored that Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas saw what was going on and decided to sit out the 2012-13 season, which at the moment looks like a ceremonial gesture, as no one else in the NHL is playing, either.
Now comes evidence that Kevin is striking back against Yankee apologists. Today on Civil War Memory he features a map from 1888 portraying the spread of slavery through the United States (as well as that part of British North America that became the United States). He has the temerity to ask why the map overlooks the presence of slavery in the northern colonies/states.
Here’s the map in question:
I await news that the Southern Heritage Preservation Group has extended a lifetime membership to Kevin. Apparently his hatred of all things Yankee(s) has become a cause of concern to those who rejoice in the triumph of the Union. Maybe he’ll be called Copperhead Kevin.
Kevin, we hardly knew ye.
