your Godmother

Miracles DO happen! Maybe the CUBS will win next
year......But I think people will be traveling
to the moon before I ever get used to this goofy
contraption! :) and since your mom & I share a
brain.....:) enough said.
But hey, who'd ever of thought I would even be
e-mailing! Especially to my Godchild, clear across
the globe!!!!!
Love ya :)

Rummel

I smell a conspiracy!!! The Cards went down WAY too easy (see note) To flesh out my all too probable conspiracy theory, observe the following [semi-]facts:

1. This game is historic. The psychologic pressure felt by the Cards to lay down and heal to the Gods must have been all consuming.
2. Money flows like water in the sports arena and its influence was obvious. Without falling into verbosity I'll list a few: Card's pitching was far below acceptable competitive high-school play. Why Tony La Russa didn't pull Marquis in the 2nd is only explainable through a vast left-wing conspiracy to hand the Sox the series.
3. The DNC has raised record amounts of money it can't spend in this election cycle. See point 2.
4. The RNC, in an attempt to suppress voter turnout in Boston payed-off the Cards knowing the Bostonians would burn their city to the ground in the event of a sweep.
5. I don't know a lot about baseball but I know a nonexistent offense when I see one. Pujols played brilliant D, but he couldn't hit a T-ball last night.
6. That's all I got.

Thank you,
goodnight

*note: I was rooting for the Sox, I just thought it would be a little more drawn out, suspenseful, you know?

"Weird fact in case you missed it: The Celtics won their first championship against St. Louis (1957); the Bruins broke a 41-year Stanley Cup drought against St. Louis (1970); and the Patriots won their first Super Bowl against St. Louis (2002)."

Louis is a saint indeed to Bostonians.

just to set the record straight. Boston last won the world series in 1918. Chicago has TWO teams that have waited even longer. The Chi-Sox won it last in 1917, and the Cubbies in 1908 (at least the cubs had a pseudo curse holding em back).

And....

The Top Ten Secrets To The Boston Red Sox Comeback:
10. Unlike the first three games, we didn't leave early to beat the traffic.
9. We put flu virus in Jeter's gatorade.
8. Let's just say Pete Rose made some phone calls for us.
7. We asked Pokey Reese to be a little less pokey.
6. It's not like we haven't won a big game before - it's just been 86 years.
5. Honestly, I think we were tired of hearing about the Patriots.
4. The messages of encouragement Martha sent on prison napkins.
3. We pretended the baseball was Letterman's head.
2. What'd you expect -- we have a guy who looks like Jesus!
1. We got Babe Ruth's ghost a hooker and now everything's cool.

    Well, the RTW trip is finished, but I think I'm gonna keep the site up for a while and use it as a place to report on some travels stateside. Hopefully I'll have a few good adventures sooner than later. Until then, the site's going to be displayed in chronological order (as opposed to the blog standard reverse-chrono). Enjoy!
