BASEBALL: YOUR WORLD CHAMPION BOSTON RED SOX

Never thought I'd live to write that. The dog finally caught the bus; Charlie Brown kicked the football; Gilligan got off the island. Not being a hockey fan - I remember the Rangers winning the Stanley Cup, but I wasn't really able to appreciate it - the closest thing I can compare this to is the fall of the Berlin Wall in terms of the "never thought I'd see the day" factor. Wow, just wow.

Technically, the 21st century began in 2001, not 2000. Which means, of course, that the Red Sox have won a World Series in this century. And the Yankees have not.

You know what one of the nicest things here is?

The universal law of Karma!

Only one bunch of idiots from Boston can win the big one in any given year. Thus, JFK will have to wait 86 years before he can mount a successful challenge. Call it The Curse of the Camembert.

Congrats to the Red Sox and their fans.

Perhaps the "Nineteen-Eighteen" chant at Yankee Stadium will now be replaced by a "Two-Thousand" chant at Fenway...

Dude, as happy as I am that the Red Sox won the WORLD SERIES, please remember that they are not the WORLD CHAMPIONS, they are the WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS. The Red Sox aren't the idiots, it's the people calling them World Champions who are.
