Anytime the Red Sox season ends without a champagne shower, I get a little sad. I probably wouldn’t be as sad if they were a .500 team. It’s not often in your life, when your hometown team can contend at a high level for a number of years. When you find yourself in that situation (as the Red Sox are), you hope to make the most of it – rack up as many titles as you can.
On the other side of the coin, in 2004 I made an educated, non-financial, bet that the Devil Rays would compete at a top level in 2008. (Yes, they will always be the Devil Rays to me.) It wouldn’t feel weird to me if they won the World Series this year. In some ways, I feel like I’ve already been there and seen them do that. (And watch out for 2010, because I’m feeling the Devil Rays that year as well.)
