      descartes buys a hot dog, and is asked "would you like some relish with that dog?"

      descartes says " i think not! "

      and disappears...

      •  They came back from 0-2 against a team that would (0+ / 0-)

        maul the 2004 Yankees (1996 Braves).

        •  0-2 has been done, but 0-3??? (0+ / 0-)

          face it- the yanks had the sox on the mat. it was over. the curse lived. another winter of red sox tears and yankees jubilation. but the sox came back. they pulled off the miracle. and they rode the mo' to slay the curse once and for all! and it's the yanks' fault! the sox's heart, and the yanks's lack thereof, produced the greatest post-season run in baseball history! and you'll never get over it! the curse is dead! forever! and you'll never ever ever get over it! ever! never!

          •  If this were a political rant (0+ / 0-)

            I'd trollrate it, but since we're talking baseball, you're cool.

            Yankee fans got over it when we won the division in 2005. Unlike Sox fans, things slide off our backs a lot easier.

              was thinking things are mellower on the i/p threads...

              but it's all in fun...

              and the thing is- that one run will keep us smiling for the rest of our lives...

                to get our minds off the more serious matters of the world.

                Or two (the NL thread was done first).

                Now the Israel/Arab threads are just nuts, I can't even go there.  That's some putrid vitriol coming from both the Israeli and Arab supporters.

          •  Also one thing regarding the "curse" (0+ / 0-)

            It was because you stunk for eighty-six years.

            There was no curse. Now that you've finally won a World Series, you can't throw any more pity parties about how we're the big bad Yankees.

            Everybody else in the league (besides the Yankees) can whine all they want about the big-market Red Sox, just another version of the Yankees when you look at the finances.

            •  i don't disagree (0+ / 0-)

              but i'll never again bleed like i did in '75, and '78, and '86...

              and that's the glory- and we have the yanks to thank for it!
