Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

THEY DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations to the 2007 World Champion Boston Red Sox!

I know everyone wants to compare this team to the 2004 team, but there is no comparison.  The 2004 team made history, and there will never be a team as ‘special’ as that one.  But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m a lot more choked up about this win than I was the one in 2004.  That October night, I was stunned more than anything else.  I celebrated with a few whoops and some quiet tears.  Tonight, I sit with the tears flowing right along with the champagne.  Two World Series wins in my lifetime.  Two.  With the promise of more to come.  It’s almost more than I can even comprehend right now.

This team won the division.  They swept the LDS.  They came back after being down 3-1 in the LCS to win and they swept a white-hot Colorado team to win the World Series.  There are no loopholes.  There are no goats.  There are only rookies and veterans and fans who never gave up hope even after finishing third in the division last year.

We’ve ALL earned it.  Every last one of us.  So enjoy it, Red Sox fans…enjoy it.

And if we aren’t happy enough – the MVP goes to Mike Lowell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

(And there are more tears.  The man deserved it!  And his ass better be re-signed in Boston for 2008, Theo!) 

Man, I can’t wait for this  parade!

(More coherent thoughts on this wonderfulness tomorrow!  Tonight, I’m celebrating!!!!)
