On April 12th, 1916, after having won three of the first 12 World Series', the Red Sox traded superstar Tris Speaker for a man named Sad Sam. The Red Sox and their fans would be sad as well, as they wouldn't win another title--IN AN ODD YEAR--until tonight.

The odd-year curse of Tris is over! We can finally celebrate!

I actually happened on the start of the game last night... thought the the opening ceremony was nice but the USAF fly-by was a bit much... Then started to watch the game absently. Lasted about as long as it took for the Red Sox to get their first run. From the sounds of it, the Rockies might just as well have stayed home and watched the series on TV like everyone else. :)

Hey, thank I/P! I know you're not into it personally, so that's really nice.

I'm sure "LuckyNumber33" is in heaven. Her guy did her proud.

Is it ever. We try to miss all that stuff, although it can be challenging.

:-D

I have to confess that I lost interest in baseball roundabout the time of the last baseball strike. I used to like to listen to the Jays on the radio when I was working on a painting in the studio. I liked it because it was like friendly conversation in the background, and every now and then, something or other would happen to get excited about. Then they'd get back to talking about some obscure stats and make them sound interesting. I enjoyed it, although I confess I never really cared who won. After the strike, though, I started listening to music in the studio instead. It wasn't about the strike (although seeing squillionaires fighting about how to cut up the pie is a turn-off). I just got used to working with music on instead (at the time, I was listening to a lot of Ornette Coleman when I worked).

Anyway, you seem very happy that your fave team has won, so congrats. cheers.

short story for you - back in '04 I lived on Peterborough St in Boston, which is literally across the street from Fenway. A few of the Sox had apartments there too - Theo, Cabrera, Daubach, Wake, and Timlin to name a few of the guys I would run into.

so two or three days after the Sox swept the Cards I happened to bump into Mike Timlin and his wife Dawn in the elevator. we said hi & I told them "Congrats!". I then added "you guys look REALLY tired!" which they did, it was similar to how my wife & I looked the first few days at home after our daughter was born!

I think that surprised them a little bit becuase then Dawn looked at me and said with a smile, "all the partying's not as glamourous as it looks..."

yeah right, betcha they didn't say that this year!!!

Now that's what I call good celebrity sightings. :)

Maybe not the next day, but I bet that night it is! :)

won't argue with you on that one! if my memory serves me correctly, Mike was on the mound for the final out when the Blue Jays won their first WS against the Braves (although his hair was a LOT longer!)

but it was neat having the Timlins as neighbours! Nice folks.

I believe you're correct about Timlin on the mound vs Braves.

No doubt, but too bad he's such an asshole - i.e. neocon warmonger Bushie.
