    My Inner Masshole

    Before I begin, I would like to second the emotions of Tim below. Truer words could not be uttered about the Rockies fans.

    Now, onto tonights game. I am so exhausted by all of the analysts saying the Red Sox are going to sweep, win in 5, etc...NO THANK YOU!!! We're perfectly fine being the underdog and that's where we'd like to stay. Of course, secretly inside I know we are going to drop the Rocks into Boston Habah and watch them sink, but that's besides the point.

    Our pitching is better then theirs? Sure, Josh Beckett is insanely good and I love Schill in the postseason, but how short term memory can you be. Dice-K got hit hard in his Game 3 start against the Indians and Jon Lester is our 4th starter? I will take nothing away from the Jon Lester story, he is an amazing man with amazing accomplishments, but if I had to take Timmy Wakefield or Jon Lester in the World Series, I would take Timmy every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    I am also leary about our chances at Coors Field. We have to do some manuvering with our line-up and that is clearly more of a problem for AL teams then it is the other way for NL teams. NL teams come into Fenway and get to add a bat to the line-up, we go into Coors Field and have to either sacrifice defense or take a bat out of the line-up. (Too bad Papi can't play shortstop.)

    Don't get me wrong, I like our chances to win the series, I just think all this talk about how we're the favorite and we're going to demolish the Rockies and how they are going to be rusty after a week off is just getting us amped up and we have the potential to be let down. So, I'll let it be known that I think we have a great chance to win, but that I don't think it's going to be a cake walk, like all the other analysts.

    I am BEGGING the Red Sox to make me eat my words. End it in 4, please, but if it doesn't happen that way and it takes 6 or 7, I'm just saying I wouldn't be surprised.

    Now that that's said, here are my predictions:

    Game 1 - Sox
    Game 2 - Sox
    Game 3 - Rockies
    Game 4 - Sox
    Game 5 - Rockies
    Game 6 - Sox - and a new dynasty is born!!!

    One last thing before I call it a post, check out this thing my wife sent me today (actually I will give credit where credit is due, Timmy's wife sent it to my wife, who forwarded it on to me,) funny ish man!!

    OK, so you're a casual baseball fan, or have other mental challenges, or you may tune in and root for who ever is winning. Before you do that, here's some things to consider when rooting for a team Wednesday night:

    1. Fenway Park (which hasn't succumbed to corporate> naming rights) was built in 1912. Notable events from that year: Titanic sunk. Coors Field built in 1993. Notable events from that year: Crystal Pepsi debuts. (another Colorado failure.)

    2. Coors beer which is not pasteurized will make you sick if it gets warm at any point of it's shipping or storage. Sam Adams won't, and it is also brewed by the descendants of a Revolutionary War Hero. Also, Coors tastes like pee. (In the interest of full disclosure here, I love Coors Light -- I know, how could I, it tastes like pee, I know, but get me a sixer of the bullet and I'll have a wicked pissa night)

    3. Red Sox greats include: Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Cy Young, Carl Ystremski, Carlton Fisk. Rockies greats include: John Elway... oops, meant to say: No one.

    4. David "Big Papi" Ortiz raises abandoned lobsters and releases them to the wild in his free time.

    5. Fenway treats include: New England Clam Chowder and Fenway Franks. Coors field treats include: "Rocky Mountain Oysters."

    Thank you for your time and consideration, and if we can't agree on all of these facts then at least we can all agree on the> fact that the Yankees SUCK!

    Ya dude...GO SOX!!!!
