I personally believe US Americans are unable to be so because...

It should help the Iraq, and such as like.

Aren't the Dolphins 0-7? London's calling to the far away town, now war is declared...

Yeah, I agree, it's fine to talk a little smack now and then and goad fans of another team/city. But, also let's keep this in perspective, not only for the global issues that we are confronted with, but also the personal challenges that many people face. There is a great article in the Boston Globe regarding Clint Hurdle and his daughter & family:

Boston Red Sox - Daughter's illness gives Rockies' Hurdle perspective - The Boston Globe

I hope the Rockies come back and win the series, but if not, Boston is a great city and has very knowledgable, loyal fans that really follow the game.

Also, just as a side note, making too much of the greatness of the players is a risky thing (not that anyone is doing that on here). They are human just like everyone else and if you scratch the surface a little bit, often times you will find out things you don't like. Enjoy the World Series for what it is, a great civic unifier in a fragmented society; a beautiful, complex game with great athletes playing it. But, great athletes do not necessarily make great people no matter what team they are on.

I am glad the rockies have a fan like you out there, they will need that type dedication to get through this series. I guess at this rate the SOX will have swept the Rockies after the next game (win OR lose) since you seem to be under the impression that a sweep means the best 2 out of three. Let's just call it quits right now then and name the SOX the winner!

You keep your chin up though, maybe they will win at least one and you can really rub that in. LOL

Can you see well with your head there????????? Just wondering....you seem to be a little disillusioned, that is the only thing you are "spelling out loud and clear".
PLEASE. you just sit back and enjoy the next four games for the real show. disillusioned? play with that one a bit... illusionsdied the illusion that the red sox are dominating that's cast it's spell on you, my friend, will die. lol

This thread got nasty-by two Red Sox fans-go figure!! I don't care who wins. The Rockies showed their Moxie last night and it aint over till the fat lady (or man) sings. [didn't want to be gender specific there!!] Life is good and baseball is the greatest sport on earth!!!!

May the best team win and I shall be sad when the season ends!!
God Bless All!!

Having fun and supporting your team is good for the soul. One of the reason why I have been a Red Sox fan for so long and am so passionate about the team is all the good the organization does for many charities. They have an outstanding record for doing good within the community and contributing to charity. I have attending many of these events for children with dissabilities. I can't think of a bad thing to say about the players or the club as a whole. It is not a team that you read about in the tabliods or on the news for bad behavior. I hope it remains that way. I am tired of watching these thugs that children are looking up to in the sports world on the news for drug use and weapon charges.

I am disillusioned by your allusion that the illustration that LovinPawleys provided that alludes to your unfortunate delusion that the Red Sox being ahead 2-0 is just an illusion.

Oh wait, reverse that... I'm on your side. My bad.

Go Rockies!!!!!!!!!
