‘I like winning!’:
Hub Blog’s Manhattan-based WMD Spy lets loose:
“All this crap about Red Sox fans not knowing what comes next after finally winning.... I know what comes next, beating the Yankees again in 2005! There are people who jump on the band wagon when teams are winning, and there are people who bizarrely jump on the band wagon when a team is losing for a very long time. Good riddence to both of them. I want the Red Sox to win. I like it when they win. I like it even more when they win against the Yankees. It’s very simple. For those who need a psychoanalyst to deal with their baseball emotions, please go cheer for some California team.” Update

also lets loose on New Yorkers and Angry Bills trying to tell us how miserable we're supposed to be about not being miserable: "There is a new identity to Red Sox Nation, and anyone who wants to remain in their own misery is hereby expelled from the premises. Pick up your violin on the way out Bill. Nobody here is going to play it for you anymore." ... This town is as happy, albeit exhausted, as I've ever seen it. The cute peddled misery schticks and stories are laughable. They're toast.Thanks a lot, riot celebrators: No City Hall rally?
The brats spoiled it for the rest of us. ... Howie
is naming names. The parents are shocked! The little darling in jail? His name might be in the papers? He might have a record? No blue-ribbon panels. Modern versions of old-fashioned New England stocks with maximum public humiliation may accomplish what parents and college administrators failed to do. ... I was looking forward to that City Hall rally!
Another suggestion: City planners still have time to modify the parade route. I’d make it another mile or so longer. There’s just going to be too many people crammed along a 3-mile route. ... Another suggestion: Head fake the BU and Northeastern clowns and hold a surprise City Hall rally for the rest of us.
