You may not be a fan of the Red Sox (die-hard and broken-hearted Met fan here) or their fans, but how can you can not appreciate their ability to overcome the pressure of a long history of failure, expected failure to achieve something that even dreams could not do justice to? It's inspiring, the kind of inspiring that transcends the team and the sport. Nothing, as these 2004 Red Sox, these Idiots, have proved, is impossible.
So how long until the Yankees take the field at Fenway to chants of "2000!" "2000!" (Doesn't quite have the "19-18!" ring, does it?)?
