Okay, so I’m disappointed the red sox lost, of course, and I’m certainly no fan of tampa bay, but I’m not heartbroken. Or even upset. This is why:
a) it’s nice to see an organization make the world series for the first time in franchise history, even if it’s tampa bay. lousy stupid tampa bay. can I just say how much florida sucks? can’t we ditch them already? stupid florida. that state annoys me like a mother-in-law.
b) it’s refreshing to see a team with one of the smallest payrolls beat a team with one of the highest.
c) the rays were simply the better team, during the ALCS and all year long; they deserved to win.
d) the red sox really needed to lose. I don’t want this team becoming the new yankees. too many winning seasons isn’t good for your constitution. I can’t handle all that success. it’s too much. too too much. it’s the struggling, the loss and pain, that sustains us.
e) now I can focus on hockey with a clear eye. when boston baseball drags deep into october, it makes it so much harder to switch gears to hockey.
f) the game 5 comeback win was all the victory we need for the year. seriously.
One last thing: that’s what you get for not playing jacoby. he wouldn’t have been tagged out at 2nd in game 7, that’s all I’m saying.
