(Obligatory Post Regarding the Red Sox' World Series Victory)

I have nothing to say about the Boston Red Sox' sweep of the Colorado Rockies to win their second World Series title in four years (the previous having followed an 86-year drought, natch) last night that hasn't already been/won't be said more eloquently on countless other locations throughout these here internets. All I can say is that I am very, very happy.

Not 2004 happy, mind you...but very happy nonetheless.

The one and only downside to this occasion? The bandwagon that started forming around 2003 is about to tip over. We real Red Sox fans know who you are, grotesque poseurs who don't know and will never know what it is to suffer a lifetime (in my particular case, a birth-to-late-20s-time) of near-victory, and we hate you more than the fans of any other team do...including Yankee fans. But at least those guys have a future of cheering on A-Rod to look forward to--

Oh, wait. What? They don't?

Well, that's a shame.


UPDATE: Okay, so now they well as a guaranteed minimum of 10 years before their team wins another World Series. My "(Tee-hee!)" stands.

For the sake of your own sanity, Johnny, I hope that you didn't come to Boston for the parade.

The churning sea of boozed-up, pig-ignorant, school-skipping, woohoo-ing teenagers that constituted the vast majority of the crowd would have likely killed you simply by virtue of its oppressive dumbness.

There were hordes, gangs, of these miscreants roaming around, and frequently, they couldn't help themselves from starting "Yankees Suck!" chants.

Dudes. We know that the Yankess suck. Everybody knows it. They know that they suck. Get over it, and stopped caring more about the Yankees than the Sox.

I was vaguely pleased to see some semi-creative soul at the parade. She was holding up a sign that read, "Is this the line for the free taco?"
