Police officers growing support for Sox and local food pantry

FARMINGTON, New Hampshire (NEWS CENTER) -- As October brings cooler weather to New England, things are just starting to heat up here in Red Sox Nation as our local nine are back in the hunt for another World Series trophy.

While the past couple of years have been difficult for die-hard fans, with the beer and chicken fueled collapse of 2011 and the Bobby Valentine fiasco that was last year fresh in fans' minds, this years' team is different.  Some would say luck has had a lot to do with it, luck derived from facial hair of all lengths and manner of upkeep, now 'Beard Nation' is growing outside of the friendly confines of Fenway Park bringing communities closer together while helping those in need.
