I HATE THE YANKEES!!!!

Funny story:

My poli sci professor was a huge Yankees nut. He actually put bonus questions on the test about Yankees trivia (# of pennants, # of World Series Championships, etc). Well, I had his class when the Yankees played the Diamondbacks in the World Series. He was making this big deal about how the Yanks would sweep the D-backs. Well, the Yanks lost so we decided that the professor needed some of his own medicine. A bunch of us got together and decorated the teaching theater before class with banners bashing the Yanks. What's really funny is that he didn't come to class for a week because he was so upset by the loss!

I'm glad the Sox won but jeesux, what happened to the cards? ^o) Boston was making errors right and left in games 1, 2, and 3, and the team that beat the astros would have latched on to those and whipped them. It was like a whole different team was playing the WS.
