I suppose I should have blogged about the Red Sox wonderful World Series win already but: (1) I’m still exhausted from staying up late watching it and (2) I don’t have much to add. It’s not like I watched a lot of games this season, being distracted and all.

Yet, it’s good to see them win. This time is different from 2004 because there isn’t the whiff of desperation of eight decades of losing and because this year’s team looks ready to build on this success. This is a young team looking to build on its future.

As for the Colorado Rockies and their fans, they are a class act, just like the St. Louis Cardinals and their fans in 2004— and not at all like those Denver Broncos and their fans. grin Seriously, what the Rockies accomplished cannot be underestimated and they provided an object lesson for the future that an eight-day layoff is a danger not to be underestimated.

Tomorrow is the big victory parade in Boston. Gerald Augustinus happens to be in town this week—good timing!—and while I won’t be able to connect with him unfortunately, I think he’ll be able to get some great photos of the parade. Good for him! Can’t wait to see them.

And so the offseason begins, where talks turns to trades and contracts. By the way, nice of A Rod’s agent, Scott Boras, to horn in on the World Series spotlight yesterday to make himself the center of attention again. He’s a very talented ballplayer, but I hope the Sox don’t pick him up. I’d rather see Mike Lowell stay right at third base in a Red Sox uniform.

So, how ‘bout dem Patriots? I hear they have a big game this week.
