And very good to me, too!

Congrats, 2007 Red Sox. So exciting, and so well-deserved. (Beth’s got the stats) It’s been a helluva ride.


Uhm … Youk? I get the sense you may be feeling a little ambivalent about the win. And I want to encourage you to come out of your shell, let your joy show a bit more openly. Thanks.

    Darned Cubans are everywhere! Even MVPs in the World Series!

  2. ‘grats, Sox nation!

    Now – enough about “curses” forever more, m’kay?

  3. Emily says:

    The Rockies had to have been pretty decent to make it this far, but honestly, they almost looked like a Little League team next to the Red Sox for the whole series. Part way through game 4, I just wrote things off as hopeless and switched to “CSI: Miami” because finishing off David Caruso’s cliched one-liners and laughing at the camp of that show was less painful than watching the game. And I wasn’t even rooting for either side. The most I was hoping for was a 5th game to see Josh Beckett in action one more time.

    Congrats to the Sox and their fans.

    Mitch- I want you to find the posts where I go on about the “curse”. They don’t exist. So enough with your bullshit about that, mkay? Or whatever, you can “whine” about the “whiners” on your own blog – but don’t project that crap onto me. You’re the one keeping some “curse” alive by even bringing it up.

    Val – a totally well-deserved award!! He has quickly become one of my favorite players.

    Hah!! My wife loves David Caruso and has banished me to the bedroom during CSI: Miami because I do the very same thing.

    Congrats to The Red Sox and all their wonderful fans especially you Red.

  7. Jayne says:

    One of mine, too. I love Lowell.

  8. Jayne says:

    I knew that would happen – I meant – Val, Sheila, me too – Mike Lowell has become one of my favorite players too. I can’t think or type coherently this morning.

    YAY SOX!!!!!

    “Okay. Think … David Caruso in Jade.”
    “Got it.”
    “You got it?”


  10. Emily says:

    I actually really want to see that movie just to figure out what they were talking about. But David Caruso’s pretty one dimensional, so I probably already know.

    But that line is so funny, like…how did two of the four people that actually watched that movie collide with each other, let alone work in the same place? But still, “David Caruso in Jade” as dating advice…

  11. red says:

    I know! It’s soooo specific!

  12. Brendan says:

    Jon Lester. OK? Hmm, could there be a better ending to this season? Wakefield gets hurt after a great regular season and Jon Lester clinches the World Series.


  13. Dan says:

    So good. So good.

  14. Brendan says:

    Here is how I picture it…

    David Caruso sits at home wearing his sunglasses while Jonathon Papelbon throws the last strike.

    He slowly takes them off.

    And changes the channel to watch himself on CSI: Miami.

  15. Kerry says:

    I love them so much that sometimes it hurts.

    Joy! Joy! Joy!

  16. Ken says:

    I console myself with the thought that the real, if unofficial, World Series ended a week ago.

    Also with Jameson’s, but I have too much schoolwork to do much of that.

    Congratulations to the Sox.

  17. red says:

    Kerry – where did you watch the game?

    I wish I had been with family or friends, but I was alone. My phone was ringing off the hook though!

    Da Sawx!

    This is making my coworker, the thin-skinned Yankee fan, SOOOOOO happy.

    Now we just have to wait for the Pats to finish stomping the NFL into little greasy smears. He may need that Monday off. (muahahahahaha)

  19. It’s been a great weekend for me and sports. I don’t know if you ever visit Dennis Cozzalio’s blog Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule but I made a bet with him on the series. He lost (Sox smash Rox every time). His most hated movie of the nineties is now on his sidebar for all of November (he’s a very good sport and a great guy).

    And my Pats… 52-7. Sweet. But next week’s the real test against the Colts.

    Re: your lashing of Mitch. I am in awe of you.

  20. red says:

    Jonathan – I love Dennis’ blog!! I have to go check out his sidebar – that’s hysterical!!!

  21. red says:

    Oh my God, I just saw the poster up in Dennis’ sidebar and I am guffawing.

    I agree with your comment about Jon Lester. However, I thought Francona made a HUGE mistake by yanking Lester after a 3-2 walk. Delcarmen was saved by a great performance by Timlin, would have been better to let Lester go into the 6th, I mean, he wasn’t even up for the top of the 6th batting order.
