It is my moral
duty to take full and personal responsibility for the loss
of the American League Championship Series to the Doughboys
of Doom, the New York Yankees. If you are interested, below are the reasons
for my direct responsibility, and a solemn promise that this is
the last I will write about the Red Sox – ever.
Fitfully, the Dowbrigade tossed and turned, trying unsuccessfully to
take a siesta and chill his fevered brain, which was awash
in raw emotions rooted in his dearest dreams and deepest hatreds. I was
to rest up and gather my forces, meager though they were, to keep my
fragile psyche in one piece and focus my full psychic energies on the
upcoming climatic clash between the charismatic hometown Sox and the
universally detested New York Yankees.
