Yeah, but John Kerry's political career isn't going to last 86 years (thank God). And here I, as a Boston Republican, imagined that all the potential for people to annoyingly link the World Series and the election ended with the Astros losing the NLCS. Just wishful thinking, I guess. ;-)

As for the Sox winning, I still don't think it's quite sunk in with me yet. It's just too unreal.

OK, here's the good news.

Kerry and his Bosox (Name a player, John?)may have won the Fall Classic, but thousands of folks from St. Louis will now vote against the guy from Boston, throwing the state of Missouri to Bush.

I've waited 50 years for this. And it is very sweet, indeed.

But the best part?

The Universal Law of Karma

Only one group of Boston idiots gets to win the big one in any given year.

Thus, JF Kerry will have to postpone his inauguration for another, oh, 86 years. Now THAT rocks!

heh, they did it. they fuckin did it. all the beers won't let it sink in yet.

You've got it wrong, John. Good things happen in threes:

1. January: Patriots win the Super Bowl
2. October: Sox win the Series
3. November: Kerry wins the presidency.

And need I add Massachusetts becoming the first state to legalize gay marriage? No question, the entire state is truly blessed this year.

You contradict yourself! If they come in threes, they don't come in fours. Pick the one you want to drop... obviously--unless you're Mr. Peabody--you can't take the Sox victory.

Your choice?

Is that your final answer?

The gay marriage event wasn't part of a victory in single event, like an election or a series or a superbowl. Rather, it was the inevitable outcome of a series of processes. It didn't count as one of my three great victories of '04 -- merely as a reminder of the blessedness of Mass. this year...
