Why The Yanks Must Win

An e-mail, from a thinking Boston man:

If the Red Sox come from behind to win this series from the Yanks,

after being down 3-0, just look out

for the “Comeback Kerry” campaign to co-opt their success. And should

the Red Sox win their World Series,

and finally shed the curse, it would stand to be even worse. That would

be a sickening spectacle for baseball.

I was rooting for the Sox, but now I’m not so sure. If they win the

Series, they will finally deserve the full fruits

of their victory, not be co-opted by a political campaign of doofuses

who couldn’t stand in the batter’s box to face down

my seven-year old niece’s patented cut-slowball.
