What the hell is going on here… The Patriots are 7-0 with no signs of slowing down, Boston College surpassed LSU for the #2 spot in the rankings, BFFs Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are gearing up for the Celtics, the Bruins are resting comfortably at 5-2 and even the New England Revolution (they’re our MLS team if you didn’t know) are headed to the playoffs. Oh, and by the way, the Red Sox are GOING TO THE WORLD SERIES! This. is. scary.
“The champagne tastes just as good on the road as it does at home.” – Cleveland’s Ryan Garko. Hey Garko, maybe Papelbon will share some with you while he does the Irish jig over first base. (Although I do think that comment was taken out of context, hell, I’m excited.)
Do you believe in jinxes? I can’t really say much about baseball, but I can name a few in football… like Pittsburgh renting hotel rooms in New Orleans before the AFC Championship in 2001 or what about San Diego planning the Super Bowl victory celebration before the team even PLAYED a playoff game last year.
The only thing that sucks about the Sox in the World Series is tomorrow’s “Patriots Monday” on WEEI will be overshadowed but that’s OK. I’ll live. 😀
