The Lexus, The Olive Tree, and the Annoying Boston Sports Fan

The perils of globalization are well-illustrated by this Stockholm drinking establishment located somewhere along my walk from the Östermalmstorg T-Bana stop and the Historiska Museet:


At first glance it appears to be merely one of the developed world’s two trillion Irish bars. But upon closer inspection it’s actually a Boston-themed bar. And not just Boston-themed, but seemingly specifically oriented around Boston sports teams, who proudly boast the most insufferable sports teams in the world.

I think Stockholm went wrong with the fact that its otherwise excellent subway system is called the Tunnelbana. This leads it to be illustrated with a “T” sign that’s eerily reminiscent of the MBTA’s own insignia.
