Well I have to say, finally after all those unforgiving decades, after all those wicked cruel years, the Curse of the Bambino is definitely dead and buried for good … the Boston Red Sox have won the World Series again. Again!
Beantown wins the World Series again! …No f ’in’ way! Sweeping the Colorado Rockies in four straight games? You’re shittin’ me! How the hell did that happen? The Rockies had won their previous 21 of 22 games. If Boston’s World Series victory in 2004 wasn’t beyond friggin’ belief, coming back to win against the much hated New York Yankees in American League Championship series and then sweeping St. Louis in the World series to end an 86 year drought … winning it ALL again this year, just a couple of seasons later is utterly mind blowing! This must be the new millennium!
This year Boston was just an evil heart breaker in the playoffs. First they swept the Los Angeles Angels in the Division series, and then they ripped out the hearts of all Cleveland Indian fans everywhere by coming back and winning the AL Championship series after being down 3 games to 1. And in the Series against Colorado, the Red Sox were simply overwhelming in every sense of the word. Tonight, Sunday, the Boston Red Sox swept to their second title in four years. Wow! With Jon Lester, Mike Lowell, who won the series MVP award, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Jacoby Ellsbury, Hideki Okajima, Josh Beckett, Curt Schilling, Jonathan Papelbon and the big bats of Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz, Boston was just relentlessly, obstinately, unremittingly, unstoppable! (Thank god for my Thesaurus!) Congratulations Boston!
Side note: I’m actually a Dodger fan, always have been, always will be … just wait till next year! … Anyway, here’s the weirdest sports line of all; the Red Sox manager Terry Francona is undefeated in the World Series, winning 8 games without a loss.
