god damn this is awesome.. just awesome!

Well, I'll just repost it here then.

"Man oh man.

Bad enough the Yankees can't seem to do shiat in the playoffs anymore, but the Red Sox winning twice in that timeframe? Unreal, man.

Congratulations and all credit imaginable to the 2007 Boston Red Sox, the world champions of baseball. You were the best team all season long, and when it came time to prove it in the postseason, you were the best team then too. Gritty come-from-behind win to get to the Series, and pure dominance afterwards. Absolutely masterful job.

As much as I can't believe J.D. Drew and Eric Gagne are now World Series Champions and will have the rings to go with it, I have to say they and the other 23 truly are. Congratulations again."

I'm not a fan, and I live in a quiet neighborhood that's nowhere near Boston, but just for the hell of it, I'm gonna turn over a few cars and them on fire.

Then, I'm gonna spray paint my whole body red, and run down the street naked, screaming like a maniac, and smashing bottles.

WOO HOO!!!

Then, I'm gonna post 3 of every Red Sox image I can find, on Fark

FTFA: They hit as if each at-bat were their last, swings more appropriate for a home run derby than the World Series. They couldn't move runners, couldn't produce quality outs, too often striking out (such was the case with runners on in the third, sixth and seventh innings). They didn't pitch well enough, their starters only once working at least five innings...

Whoops, how did that paragraph from an old Braves story get in there?


Congratulations, Boston!

I have been a Red Sox since I was a wee little one (then again I'm only 24), but I seem to remember prior to 2000 or so it was humiliating to be proud to be a Red Sox fan because of their poor record (I could be wrong, I don't have any stats or anything to back it up). But I think that defensively they rocked, and personally I was scared going into the World Series with the record that the Rockies had. I was just happy that the Sox made it this far, and they have some fabulous players that are not payed the ridiculous amount of Dice-K.

Okay, I'm done.

Apparently the Rockies are following the Broncos example rather than the Avs. Are they going to lose 3 more WS before they figure it out?

i'm the same age and grew up in boston, and it wasn't embarrassing to be a fan, they were never really a bad team, just marred by alot of misfortune, everytime it got within their reach, they lost it.

Could be worse. You could have been an Angels fan when they had cheerleaders and the team sucked. There's nothing like being 12 games ahead going into August and not making the post season [1995 season].

/worst. idea. ever.
//In line with my earlier posts, I'd like to extend a big "fark you too" to Disney for that.

Eloquent, gracious, noble. I'd like to think that I would have risen to that level if it had been the Yankees, but it isn't likely so.

Thank you.

thats true, at least the sox used to wait till the post season to screw themselves most of the time.

Red Sox fans, enjoy your time in the sun. You earned this victory.

But we've got a good group of players here. They'll be a force to contend with next year and maybe beyond.

THE ROX WILL RETURN!!!

You're right. We're SO missing out because there aren't any big pointy rocks in our backyard. Hope your 2nd place trophy keeps you warm this winter.

Liked this year's Sox team much better than in '04. That whole "cowboy up" trip was annoying. This time 'round, much easier to handle. Brace yourselves, though, Boston: Papelbon AND Beckett doing Riverdance at your pahty. "I'm King of the Dance!" "No, I"M King of the Dance!!!"

No more cheese-bag "God Bless America" every damned game... I'm trying to look on the sunny side of the end of another baseball season.

How many days until pitchers and catchers report?

JPINFV: Farking Massholes. Now I've got all you dim wits driving down the street honking your horns. It's surprising they even work after using them all day because the car in front of you didn't start moving 0.005 seconds after the light changed green [ignoring the 5 cars in front of it, of course]. Hell, it's worse here than the traffic in Southern California. I hate this farking state [p.s. your roads suck] and can't wait till I finish grad school to leave.

FARK YOU BOSTON.

P.S. Your liquor laws suck also. Why the fark do you limit alcohol sales so much and why can't I use my farking California driver's license to purchase some in most places? Mother farking nanny state.


I blame Mitt Romney.

/Denver owes Mayor Mumbles some Quiznos...
//and yea, where is the Riverdance????
 
2007-10-29 01:15:58 AM  
It was fun to see in 2004.

It's feh now.

I'm sure Boston sports fans will handle it in their usual quiet, classy, Bill Simmons way.

As a Boston fan, I still do have to say that the Rockies don't suck. We'll see you in the '08 series, it's ON

Timlin just made Wakefield cry on NESN. Excuse me, I have something in my eye.

just got back from the game. Congrats sox.
Nothing will take away the run that the Rockies had.
Way to go guys!
