2007 World Champions!

Susan:
Congratulations to the Best Team in Baseball!

 

Tara:
Congratulations to MVP Mike Lowell.

 

Susan:
Congratulations to soon to be named Rookie of the Year Dustin Pedroia, soon to be named AL Cy Young winnah Josh Becket, and soon-to-named 1st Gold Glovah Kevin Youkilis.

 

Tara:
And congratulations to us!

 

Susan/Circle:
The greatest fans in all of sport!

 

Let's face it, no productive work will take place today … …

Doug:
Holy shit when the Red Sox get into the World Series, they don't just win, they friggin' Blitzkrieg.

 


Al:
Yeah, there's sweeps and then there's outscoring an opponent 29-10 and only trailing the opponent by a grand total of 3 innings out of 36.

 


Doug:
I can just see it:

The Rockies:
"Jesus, why have your forsaken us?"

J.C.:
"Are you kidding me? I taught you fools how to fish, now I have to teach you how to pitch and hit too? And you call yourselves 'fundamentalists'? Maybe, my children, a little more work on OBP and little less prayer, know what I'm sayin'?"

 

Another World Series victory, can you believe it? …

Bill:
Bob Ryan has it right: "2004 was an exorcism. 2007 is an exclamation point."

 

Steve:
And don't forget Ryan's advice: "Go ahead. Call up the Yankee fan in your life. Be as obnoxious as you want to be."

 

Bill:
All in good time. For the moment, I think we can let them just stew in their own self-inflicted misery a bit.

 

Somewhere in Manhattan …

Marty in his penthouse lair:
Noooooooooooooo!!!!

//This is the marking of a true Sox fan - always ready for the supreme disappointment.//

Oh Puh-leaze. I've been a Red Sox fan since 1970 and I've NEVER EVER been "ready for the supreme disappointment." Eff that crap.

What I like best about the 2007 Red Sox is that to most of them, 1978 and 1986 are about a relevant to them as 1946 is to me. It's ANCIENT HISTORY. Thank goodness.

Angst blows. Winning is better than losing. And Josh Beckett rocks my world.

Thanks for the great season, h.b.! :-)

Thanks HB & all the regulars that make this site what it is -- a place to deal constructively with the sturm & drang that is every Red Sox season. 2007 was a great ride. See y'all in Tokyo for opening day. Oh and if anyone has an extra ticket to see Francona manage the AL squad at the All-Star Game in the Bronx next summer, lemme know. Woo hoo!!!

I initially was angry over the move by Boras and A-Rod to opt out during the 4th game. But I changed my view. That announcement stuck a shiv into the collective guts of the Yankees and their fans (the few who actually are baseball fans and watch the Series when other teams are playing) on a national stage as their hated enemies were about to take the WS. It was a beautiful and sadistic move by A-Rod who obviously has a deal in place with the Dodgers (which now will be managed by the patient Torre and coached by hitting guru Mattingly).

'we used to live in shoebox in middle of road but you try telling young people that and they won't believe you'

we lived in a rolled up newpaper in a septic tank...

I like being World Series Champs much much better.

My dad:

"In myyyyyyyyy day, I had to pick beans for three hours before walking six miles to school where my football coach wuld have a three hour practice before school even started."

Me:

"Jeez, you were an idiot."

Thanks for the great year(s)- h.b. and fellow soxaholix. I don't post often, but you all make it a little easier to live in London but still feel as though I'm still on top of everything.

Thanks again. '07 was a great year!

The Boston Red Sox is a great American team, and have a positive spirit. You could see, and feel the energy, of the very motivated Red Sox team when they play baseball. The Red Sox make the best role models for the young generation. Incredible team work, and love for each other. Very good sportsman ship example, when the Yankees were up 3-0, the Red Sox congratulate them, and wish them well against ST Louis. When the Red Sox came back 3-4 and won, the Yankees wish no well to the Red Sox, and just hated pure hate = evil. Red Sox = Sportsman ship, team work, love for each other, and fans, of all teams in MLB. I'm from New York City, and I had a good time in Boston, really nice place, and people. I'm proud to be a Red Sox fan.
Go Red Sox Go! 2007 :)
