    Default WORLD SERIES: RED SOX vs. ROCKIES

    Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry
    Tessie is the tune they always sung
    Tessie echoed April through October nights
    After serenading Stahl, Dinneen and Young
    Tessie is a maiden with a sparkling eye
    Tessie is a maiden with a love
    She doesn't know the meaning of her sight
    She's got a comment full of love
    And sometimes when the game is on the line
    Tessie always carried them away
    Up the road from third base to Huntington
    The boys will always sing and sway

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Tessie, you are the only only only

    The Rooters showed up at the grounds one day
    They found their seats had all been sold
    McGreevey led the charge into the park
    Stormed the gates and put the game on hold
    The Rooters gave the other team a dreadful fright
    Boston's tenth man could not be wrong
    Up from third base to Huntington
    They'd sing another victory song

    Two! Three! Four!

    Tessie, Nuff Said McGreevey shouted
    We're not here to mess around
    Boston, you know we love you madly
    Hear the crowd roar to your sound
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you

    You know we couldn't live without you
    Boston, you are the only only only
    Don't blame us if we ever doubt you
    You know we couldn't live without you
    Red Sox, you are the only only only

    I can't stand the arrogant punk, either. You can't deny his ability to produce, though. What is his slugging percentage this post season, .850? Both him and Ortiz.

    I don't think the Rockies have a chance. The BoSox got hot at exactly the right time, and their pitching is far above that of the Rocks.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see the Sox sweep.

    Of course they will win. When was the last time the MLB championship wasn't decided in the ALCS?

    In fact, the NL has taken 5 of the last 12 world series match ups.

    With that sample size, I would say it's about split.

    Any illusion of an AL dominance is purely the result of bigger payrolls in the AL.

    Plus, the NL is the "real baseball, without the tacky boob job of the 70's known as the DH.

    Never mind. You're right. It's late. I don't even remember the point I was trying to make.

    BTW, I'm rooting for the Rockies.

    If you're saying the AL is better than the NL in terms of talent, you're probably right. I just hate the AL on principle (but I root for the Oakland A's a lot). Their GM is a genius.

    Disdain for the DH. Appreciating the NL style of manufacturing runs, stealing bases, hit and runs, etc. AL teams tend to just get two guys on base per a double or two, and then jack a 3 run homer. They can b/c they have a DH. Also, it's silly that AL pitchers don't have to hit.

    That's just my opinion though...
