Cardigan Man: A meme is born from the Red Sox riot

New, comments

One man in a sensible sweater stepped atop a car in the aftermath of the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series. One man then stepped into history.

Sometime between the last pitch of the Red Sox winning the World Series at Fenway Park over the St. Louis Cardinals and Thursday morning, photographer Jessica Rinaldi of the Boston Globe took this photo.

Right foot forward, left hand tucked inside his sensible-but-stylish cardigan sweater, and entirely surprised to see the flash of a camera, Cardigan Man was hereby born into this virtual world.

He walks among all of us, at every time in human history. He has seen the best and worst of humanity. He has been in a Blink-182 video. He has, indeed, seen it all.
