Not to gloat...
... but I've got to give credit where credit is due.
I'm not the most chauvinistic and rabid of Red Sox fans, but I have to make note of this accomplishment. The Red Sox did an amazing job of coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the American League Pennant in seven games. Now it's on to face the red-hot Colorado Rockies in the World Series, winners of 21 out of their last 22 games.
The stars are really aligned for this region's teams right now. The rest of the country must want to burn New England down...
The Sox win the ALCS in 7.
The Patriots are 7-0
The Boston College Eagles (football) are 7-0, ranked # 2 overall (unfortunately, I'm a Notre Dame fan... don't ask how they're doing)
The Bruins are still hapless, but at least the Celtics picked up Kevin Garnett.
Jump on the Bandwagon
