Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

It was four years ago today.

Four, glorious, happy, thrilling, life-altering (in a sense) years ago when the Red Sox beat the Cardinals to win the 2004 World Series.

2007 was sweet.  It shut up everyone who said after 2004 “You won’t win for another 86 years!”.  But 2004 was magic.  And unless the Cubs win the World Series, no other fan base will truly understand what it meant to Red Sox fans.  I don’t care how egomaniacal that sounds, it’s true.

So thank you Red Sox.  For giving us that joy in 2004.  And for giving us the hope that it will happen again and again!

  1. “unless the Cubs win the World Series, no other fan base will truly understand”

    Though the White Sox ended a longer drought than ours the next year. But I know, you meant from now on. (Until the Indians’ drought gets up there if it does. Currently at the 60-year mark.)

  2. Yeah but the White Sox fans didn’t have nearly the attitude nor responses that you’d expect from a fanbase with such a drought.
