This goes out to the haters. This goes out to Joe Buck, Tim McCarver and Fox Sports with their Cleveland Rocks song at every single commercial break regardless of the stadium. This goes out to Kenny Lofton, Ryan Garko, and Larry Dolan. I hope the Champagne was still cold when you got on the bus boys….it'll be a long trip home. A well fought, exciting series. Just be sure to burn the rags that you wiped the smug trash talking grins from your face with and enjoy the world series from you HD sets.

Jeez....Not ONE SINGLE RESPONSE to this thread? Odd.

Anywho...Great game for us Sox fans out there tonight. Gave the Rockies a good spanking. Colorodo played well...Boston was just the better team tonight. Game 1 to the good guys. Game 2 to follow tomorrow night!

I still have hope that we will see the return of the old Sox, the ones who could teeter on the brink of a series victory and then snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Yup, that sure was some spanking. That's the problem when a bunch of greenhorns who haven't worked in a week are told they have the best team. I watch the world series every year ... I hope they go seven games.
POOF!

That's it Kregg - I wasn't sure if the time off would help them be refreshed and ready to go, or if it would interupt their streak. The fact they are all 14 on the CR doesn't help them either.

I couldn’t identify with the title to the topic, which is why I didn’t post before. I don’t consider the fans of the opposition to be “haters” and while I know nothing about the players for the other teams, I’d like to think they’re “good guys” too.

I expect you were writing your post in the spirit of the way professional wrestlers, as in, “professional wrestling actors,” talk. It is good to get pumped up about the Red Sox! I’m a fan, and I'm glad the Red Sox won.

7 Games! That would be torment! I hope they win in 4!

If they go 7, they better win! Then, I will retroactively agree with you that having 7 games is better! Smile


I was 11 years old when the “Dream Team” lost the series to the St. Louis Cardinals. I had baseball cards then, and I could name everyone on the team. I watched them come within a hair of winning in 1975 and 1986 too. Those series took me from exhilaration to frustration in just seconds. There were other heartbreaking years too, where it seemed they had a chance. They hadn’t won since 1918, and there was a feeling of hopelessness. I thought I might never see them win in my lifetime.

The Yankees are the Red Sox’s arch-rivals, and have been their nemesis for many years. I used to tell my Yankee-fan friends that, “being a Red Sox fan builds character.” There wasn’t much else to say, the Yankees had many World Series victories, and the Red Sox only rarely won the American League Pennant.

In 2004, the Red Sox eliminated the Yankees in the playoffs and won the league pennant. That year, my son was 11 years old, and like when I was 11, The Red Sox played the St. Louis Cardinals for the World Series, only this time they won in grand style, coming back from 3 games behind to nothing, something that had never been done before in the history of the game. It seemed a fitting end to, “the curse of the Bambino.”

Before the 2004 World Series, I had tried to explain to my son what it had been like to be a Red Sox fan, the ups and downs; mostly the downs. It wasn’t easy to explain. When I was young, a family could afford to go to live games several times during the year. We saw the players up up-close several times during the year. They were a part of the extended community to us, not just some iconic representation of the region.

Even without that backdrop, last nights game was unbelievable. I can’t recall seeing a pitcher walk three consecutive batters with bases loaded in any World Series before. And, the Red Sox didn’t even need those runs! I expect the next pitcher Colorado plays will be substantially better.

I’ll say what I've said many years in the past, “This could be the year!” Smile
Humans make life so interesting. Do you know that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to create boredom. Quite astonishing.

Rounders? rather dull, public executions are far more entertaining, and there would be no need to take sides,

I don't care who wins as long as the Denver team loses. which from what I hear is exactly what is happening.
