Red Sox Dynasty?Regardless if you are a baseball fan or not, I'm sure you've heard stories about the Boston Red Sox. Always so close, but just never enough to win the World Series. You've certainly heard about Bill Buckner in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series. If you turn the clock a bit more, you probably know about Bucky "F-ing" Dent's home run at Fenway Park. How about Carlton Fisk's infamous home run? Many people forget that was only Game 6, and the Cincinnati Reds actually won the World Series in Game 7.
Everything changed in 2004. The Red Sox marched into October and emerged victorious. They completed a 4-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals to win their first World Series since 1918. Babe Ruth was a pitcher for the Red Sox back then. In 2007, the Red Sox once again won the World Series by defeating the Colorado Rockies.
Last night the Red Sox beat the Angels in the ALDS and have advanced to the ALCS to play the Tampa Bay Rays. If the Red Sox manage to advance to the 2008 World Series and win, I think it's safe to say we are experiencing a Boston Red Sox dynasty.
Did you ever think we would live to see the day?
