A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the World Series
I’m a Red Sox fan. Through and through. I live and die by the Red Sox. That can never be doubted.
Still, something weird has happened over the last few days.
I think… I think I am rooting for the Indians.
I should be violently opposed to any success for the Cleveland Indians. They swept my Red Sox in the division round, I hate them I hate them I hate them!!!
But then… Let’s just say they had no business beating the Red Sox. Boston should have nuked them until they glowed and then shot them in the dark. Somehow they won. On to the AL Championship Series against Toronto. Toronto should have flattened them the way a Sherman Tank would flatten a dandelion. Earlier tonight though, the Indians eliminated the Blue Jays in five games.
Terry Francona. Mike Napoli. Coco Crisp. There are ties to the Red Sox past on this Indians team. I think while listening to game five as former Red Sox pitcher Andrew Miller was once again making a super offense look like little leaguers I actually started rooting for these asshole Indians who beat my team.
Can you imagine the storyline of an Indians vs Cubs World Series? 2004 Red Sox manager Terry Francona vs 2004 Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein.
That’s assuming that the Cubs don’t blow it in the NL Championship Series, which they are probably going to do.
I can’t believe I’m saying this but… Go Indians.
