|No, itís not a dream. In the 100th World Series championship ever played, the Boston Red Sox swept the St. Louis Cardinals to become World Series Champions. For 86 years Red Sox fans cursed everthing from their luck to Babe Ruth as they watched others celebrate victory in the Fall Classic. But this year promised to be different.|
They swept past the heavy-hitting Anaheim Angels and then faced the New York Yankees in the ALCS. The Red Sox fell behind their archrival three games to none--and relinquished 19 runs in Game Three. Still, they refused to die. Boston won the next two at Fenway Park--and completed the greatest comeback in the history of sports--at Yankee Stadium.
Riding a crest of momentum, Boston advanced to the World Series, where they faced a St. Louis squad that had won more games than any other team in 2004. But by now, the Red Sox were unstoppable--and it took just four games to capture the title and extinguish forever the talk of a curse. Rest assured Red Sox Nation. You are living a dream--a dream come true.
