Let's face it, no productive work will take place today … …
Holy shit when the Red Sox get into the World Series, they don't just win, they friggin' Blitzkrieg.
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.
So you think the Rockies are wondering why their personal savior let them down in their hour of need?
I can just see it:
"Jesus, why have your forsaken us?"
"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? …
Bob Ryan has it right: "2004 was an exorcism. 2007 is an exclamation point."
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."
All in good time. For the moment, I think we can let them just stew in their own self-inflicted misery a bit.
