Being a resident of the Red Sox Nation, I wonder what we are going to blame the next 86 years on. No more curse, erased the Bill Buckner stigma..........hummm I'll have to work on thinking up and excuse.
I know, the curse of the Lowe, when he goes to the Yankees next year.
Well, with all the fuss and fanfare I must say, THANK GOD they won... 86 years seems like an eternity! So enjoy now while it’s fresh 'n good cuz’ it’s only a matter of… well, once in a life time for you, “Sux Phans”. Yankees will blow you right outta of your cleats!
The Red Sox now join the ranks of the Yankees as an evil empire to be hated, although still less hated than the Yankees themselves. It's strange... now that the Red Sox have won, I'm sure there will be less nationwide support for them since they stole from the Yankees playbook to win (very convincingly, though).
As more of a Yankees hater than a Red Sox fan, I guess the World Series was a letdown in that it was so anticlimactic as compared to the ALCS. I'm just happy that I can get on a normal sleep schedule now...
A theme of redemption through the season. All of us should take the inspiration to know that maybe some day things will change in our own lives.
Think about it. Manny being hung out to dry, A-rod deal falling through, down 0-3, Lowe being left out, Pedro pitching poorly end of season, SCHILLINGS FOOT!!!, Trot out for most of the year, Damon and Bellhorn doing nothing for the first few games, people booing Millar earlier in the season, Nomar.
What more can I say? This is an amazing story with a real theme of overcoming hardship and succeeding through teamwork and guts.
Now finally it's over and on to the real love of our lives - SKIING!!!!!!
Argh argh argh...Well once in a lifetime is good enough. The next time will be 2091? So enjoy it while it lasts. I still like the ratio between Yankees' world series wins and Sox's though. It probably will take until year 3100 for that ratio to get even, if ever possible at all....
I love hearing Yankees fans try to put a spin on this like they're better because of past success. The way I see it, we're better - NOW. And that's what matters. Who knows if the Curse of A-Rod will make it 86 years until you guys ever win again. Just as possible as not!
If we skied the way the Yankees played baseball noone would enjoy themselves!
