So much for living in the Age of Freakin' Reason ... both "cursed" teams manage to promote their long-term images by choking in game 7 of their respective series. The Red Sox actually deserve a lot of credit; they went back on the road down 3-2, and won the first game and came close to winning the second. The Cubs, on the other hand, were up 3 games to 1 with home-field advantage, and managed to lose three games in a row, including two in Wrigley Field.

[sigh] So instead of a World Series with the promise of real historical significance, which would have been true if either the Red Sox or Cubs had made it alone, we get the Marlins who won less than a decade ago, and New York for the fifth time in six years. Fabulous, simply fab-oo. I'll make sure I set the TiVo, with a priority level somewhere above the classic "Saved By The Bell" episodes where Screech's voice changes.

As the fans headed out of this ancient stadium toward the elevated subway tracks, their taunting chant echoed in the corridors: "19-18! 19-18! 19-18!"

The classiness of Yankees fans -- another reason to hate New York.

[double sigh]
