Congratulations Red Sox!

Well the Sox have just swept the World Series again. I can hear the helicopters and celebrating fans from my home now, a big difference from 2004 when I saw the Sox win the series from a hotel bar deep in Yankees territory. It felt different this time, too. I was finally able to enjoy the games without thinking too much about 1986 and all the rest. The cursed Red Sox team is gone, perhaps forever. That’s a good thing overall.

The only problem is it will be impossible for the next generation to relate to what my grandfather, father and I experienced collectively over an 86 year period. I guess we’ll have to find another way to connect.

One thought on “Congratulations Red Sox!”

  1. After living in Boston for some time, I’m thrilled they won last night! Kinda wish it wasn’t a sweep though. It would have given us just a game or two more of baseball before being plunged into the long dark of winter…
