America's Team

Is there anybody -- who has not transversed Dike Bridge -- who is rooting for the Red Sox to win the World Series? The Colorado Rockies have captured the hearts of America, even the most ardent baseball haters. The Red Sox have become the thing that they have hated the most -- the New York Yankees. Only with uglier female fans.

As much goodwill as the Diamondbacks, Marlins and Angels gave the world by vanquishing the Yankees, the Red Sox have undone by being even bigger idiots. At least when Yankees fans were boasting about their 26 titles, they could be proud of it. The team that the Yankees dominated baseball with in the 1990s had a roster that was home grown with guys like Jeter, Posada, and Rivera. They actually did it the right way.

Have you seen the Red Sox roster lately? Ortiz, Ramirez, Lowell, Schilling and Beckett -- all nabbed from struggling teams looking to save their payroll. The 1997 Marlins get a bad rap for being mercenaries, but they have nothing this collection of talent bought by Boston.

Nobody is giving the Rockies much of a chance because of the long break. Baseball being the only sport that seemingly punishes its teams for winning too fast. Don't let Detroit's debacle from last year's World Series fool you, because the Rockies can actually field a ball. Not only that, the Red Sox are going to have to play David Ortiz in the field for at least three games.

No the Rockies have a better than average chance. Colorado in five.

I'm rooting for the Red Sox. But then again, I've been known to cross dress.

Over the past three days I've figured out why SoCals hate Boston fans so much. I hope you're correct about the 8 day layoff not being a factor. Maybe a win tonight would shut these pricks up.

The Rockies should counter by having Ted Williams Jr. throw out his old man's head out for Game 3.

SoCal fans hate Boston for the Lakers vs. Boston during the 1980s and Dave Henderson.

Really, when you look at the history of sports, Los Angeles and New York haven't had many battles at all unless you are a Dodgers fan or can remember the Jerry West era Lakers.

You can throw Chargers and Patriots in there for the last couple of years. But ironically, most LA fans were rooting for the Patriots against the St. Louis Football Team in Super Bowl XXXVI.

We've got Teddy Ballgame's head chilling in the humidor with a couple dozen Rocky Mountain oysters. He'll be wearing them for earrings when we trot him out.

Jesus, these Rockies players are all thin and in shape and in no condition to play baseball. Which coach is in charge of steroids and obesity?

This series started off with a bang.

"Half the guys on the Red Sox look like GG Allin. These mustaches, these weird beards, and shaved heads. I'm expecting to see Merle Allin in the dugout cheering them on." --
