YAY Teams! We Have Great Ones.
Posted 9/30/2011 12:48:00 PM

Well, we got our “October Surprise” early. Handed to us on a silver platter. The Sox are out of the playoffs and done for the season. Terry Francona is finished as their manager. And to top it all off, we had to root for the Yankees during their end of season series with Tampa Bay, what crazy time warp were we just in? Let's not forget the Patriots recent loss to Buffalo, that threw us all for a loop. Let's hope that was just a fluke.

 

So all of this sports talk has made me realize how spoiled we've been to have had so many great teams in Boston. I guess our standards are pretty high. I mean look at the Bruins. They won the Stanley Cup. The Red Sox have given us a couple of recent World Series titles. The Patriots have been a powerhouse. Our Celtics have given us a world championship and some conference titles in recent history.

 

I know plenty of cities who would give anything to have just one winning season for one of their teams. I'm thinking of my husband, a long suffering Cincinnati fan. That city hasn't seen a championship in baseball and especially football for a long time.

 

So I’ve decided I'm not going to feel so bad if we have a season or two where things just don't work out on the field or the ice or the parquet. We've had some great runs and we will again. But rooting for the Yankees? Let's hope we never have to do that again!
