On Valentines Day, Youkilis professes his love for the Red Sox

It's Valentines Day and love is in the air. Most people mistreat their loved ones all year long and choose this day to makeup for it.

Perhaps a box of chocolates from the local pharmacy? Maybe a teddy bear from a gas station? Chinese food? Each has its own romantic qualities.

Seeing that love is in the air, Kevin Youkilis was also feeling it for his former team.

"I'll always be a Red Sox," Youkilis told ESPN New York. "To negate all the years I played for the Boston Red Sox, and all the tradition, you look at all the stuff I have piled up at my house and to say I'd just throw it out the window, it's not true.

"Those were great years in Boston. One bad half-year doesn't take away from all the great years I had there."

Even if it is true, it probably isn't the best way to try and win over your new fan base.
