2004’s effect

The Red Sox World Series victory has taken the dread out of it all.

Pre-2004 when the Sox would find themselves in a tight game, trailing by a run, you had no hope.  There was no way that they could find a way.

And if they actually found themselves ahead?  Ghosts of Buckner and Little.

As I sat watching Game 3 tonight, never was I wrought with dread.  Okaji serves up a 3 run shot to get the Rockies back within a run and I shrugged it off.

And, hell, when Papelbon came on I was flipping channels between pitches.  No fear.

I am not entirely sure that is a good thing.

Oh, and what was with the turd behind home plate?  Trying to become the new Wheels On The Bus Lady from Shea Stadium circa 1986?

  1. 2004 was (literally) a cry-tears-of-joy moment. 2007 has been a sit-back-and-admire-the-team moment. Yes, different, but both are excellent.

    Unlike Pat, however, I still cling to the fatalistic leanings which have burdened me most of my life… I kept figuring the boys would find a way to blow it.

    Here’s to not blowing it! Go Sox!
