From a first time blogger, thoughts about life from an American missionary now living in the US after years in Russia and doing a lot of back and forth. Family stuff, Christian content, sports innuendo and lots of quotes from good books.

It Just Seems Right...

that the Boston Red Sox win the World Series. I know, I know...St. Louis is a great baseball town, Mike Cope loves them, Busch Stadium is fantastic, the Cards are good guys, their stars of yester year are not cryogenically frozen like Ted Williams is, yady yady yady. Do you realize that roughly 1.2 billion people have been born and died since the Sox won it all in 1918? Does it not get your heart even a little bit that the hated, dreadful, epitome of evil New York Yankees have won 26 World Series titles since 1918? Is it not even on your radar screen that all 3 professional Boston sports franchises have won multiple championships since the Sox won just one?

I beg you, in the name of all that is right in this world, to pull for the Sox to win this. When they do, please do yourself a favor and read the Boston Globe the morning after to see what an entire city really (really) behind a team feels when they finally win it all. Remember, I live in Atlanta so I have NO idea what a passionate fan base seeing their team win a championship is all about. Then, to see what this means to a kid who grew up in Boston and lived through all of the pain of 1975 and 1986 and 2003, read The Sports Guy's article the morning after (well, maybe a few mornings after as I am pretty sure he'll be in no condition to write for a while after they win it).

In the grand scheme of things, face it - who cares! In the scheme of the World Series though, pull for the Sox. Please!
