The Boston Red Sox have just ended
an 86-year drought by beating the St. Louis Cardinals in the World
Series. We, the Red Sox Nation, will never be the same. Turned out this was the year. Totally amazing. I believed, but wasn’t sure it really could happen in my lifetime.
(Also: Dave, I think you’re brilliant and insightful and a visionary and all, but never, ever, will the Red Sox look anything like the Yankees. I figure that was actually meant to be a compliment, from a New York kid to us Boston kids.)
