I’m trying to tell myself it’s not bad if the Sox go on and win the World Series. They’re the best team, Boston’s a great city, Fenway is a beautiful park, and they have a rabid fan base. The "curse" is over, so what’s the big deal.
But seeing Manny Ramirez so emphatically turn a 7-2 deficit into a 7-3 deficit, then thrust both arms in the air like he just won a pie-eating contest before circling the bases during the time the Goodyear blimp could have circumnavigated the globe makes me think a Cleveland victory would be true poetic justice. I still don’t think the Sox have much right to lose this series, but they are on the verge of being upset. And if that does happen, will someone tell Manny?
