Hear that sound? That's the sound of 10,000 bartenders clicking this link, then saying "oh, ok", all at once.

+1. The article seems a bit dated - Pedro is long gone, and a World Series has been won.

Ulf, that rivalry has been going on almost 100 years. Even Jason won't argue that one.

Google "Red Sox Nation" or "Red Sox" + blog - you wouldn't believe the contempt and bitterness out there.

It makes for good baseball though.

I know; I've lived in Boston long enough to figure out that it is mostly Red Sox fans bitter about not winning. I'd hoped that after the World Series all this would just go away. All those shouting matches of "1918" vs. "Yankees suck" got old really fast. But apparently, there's nothing new under the sun. Yawn.

The Yankees still suck and I hope what's his name chokes on the hair that was cut from his head. That said, they won and anything else really doesn't matter, as long as the Yankees lose. I generally don't follow baseball too much anymore though.

I know who he is, I just didn't want to say his name. As for why I don't really follow it anymore, mostly because not living in New England has made it hard to follow the Sox and the overall character of the game at the professional level seems to have changed for the worse since I was a kid.

JM : I know who he is, I just didn't want to say his name.

Whew... I'm so glad you mentioned that. I wouldn't want you to have thought I was bustin' your balls with some dry irony.

I was just thinkin' that if ever you were going to hang up the RedSox uniform and become a Yankee fan, you have a real great opportunity, being that you have so many familiar faces on the team. It's great fun being a Yankee fan, and the longest you'll wait for some October fun is a year or two, tops.

So when do start to be bad for Jason? Funny you should ask. Check out this link on the sad state of New England Little League. Funny stuff.
