See, The Yankees Really Do Suck

Wow. Just a few days ago I really did not think that I would be able to say that the Red Sox are going to the World Series. And yet, "the Red Sox are going to the World Series!" This team is so good that they decided to spot the Yankees (Suck) a three games to none lead. As has been said, and written, many times recently, the Red Sox are the first team in baseball history to win a postseason series after being down three games to none. It's never happened in basketball and has happened only twice in hockey. Football does a one game showdown so they don't factor here. Now, while the Red Sox have made history by winning a series after being down three games to none, there is another point of view that I haven't heard much of. And that is that the Yankees (Suck) are the first team to ever lose a baseball postseason series after being up three games to none. It takes a very special team to pull that off.

Game one of the World Series is on Saturday folks. 4:30 local (Vancouver) time is what I've heard.. I doubt it can match the drama that occurred in the seven games against the Yankees (Suck), but still, it's the Red Sox in the World Series. It's been 86 years since the Red Sox last one the World Series. After that win, they traded Babe Ruth to the Yankees (Suck) and The Curse was born. Four times since 1918 the Red Sox have been in the World Series, and each time they lost in game seven. But, who cares? This team is clearly ready to kick all historical stats aside, proven by the fact that they are going to this year's World Series. Wow.
