Breaking the Curse

Thursday, October 21st, 2004 · 1 Comment

Last night was a night like any other: I walked the dogs, mowed the lawn, enjoyed some wine, ate some pizza. And then I watched baseball history in the making as the Red Sox became the first team in history to come from a 0-3 game deficit and defeat the Yankees in the ALCS 10-3, putting them in the World Series for the first time since 1986.

The game was awesome. The Sox took charge from the very beginning and carefully controlled the game the whole way through. Johnny Damon redeemed himself by hitting a grand slam and a 2-run homer, much better than his 2-for-23 or so overall post-season performance. Derek Lowe held his own, throwing a commanding game through seven innings.

There wasn’t anything as unusual as ARod’s bitch-slap or the class-less throwing of balls onto the field by Yankees fans in Tuesday night’s game; there was just a sense of a driven team that came together as it aims to break an 86-year-old curse.

It’s a good time to have become a Sox fan.

Foulke the Yankees!

    ny yankee fans, welcome to the curse of the arod. The sweet sweet delicious victory is only made sweeter by the red sox duping the yankees into signing the biggest stink bomb in baseball history- arod. have fun in the off season yankee fans and savor the end of your “dynasty.” all of these years of crap you have been giving me are wiped away and you can no longer say anything to me or any other red sox fan that means anything because you just made the biggest choke in sports history with the most expensive team in sports history. choke on that.

    music to celebrate to:
    ode to joy
    1812 overture
    can’t buy me love
    more than a feeling
    beautiful day
    where the streets have no name
    feel like makin’ love
    don’t stop believin’

    believe. keep the faith. dream the impossible. do it for johnny.
