I lived in Boston for about 7 years, so I know the constant rumble of "curse" and whining about failure as September and October roll around. But, now that the Red Sox have won the World Series for the first time in 86 years, will those fans finally shut up? Will they just invent new outside influences to explain failure if there is no victory repeat next year? Or will they finally fess up to the fact that the Red Sox have always had good players, but has rarely been a good *team*.
Even this World Series, what I had time to see of it anyway, was a symphony of "which team can screw up less each game?"
Regardless: celebrate, Boston. You deserve it.
I have to wonder, though: what the hell is the deal with Red Sox flags in graveyards?Posted by rick at October 28, 2004 10:32 AM | More Armchair Quarterback and Other Physical Stuff
