Comments: Ain't THAT a Kick in the Head

When the Cowboys won their second Superbowl against the Bills, it was almost as much fun to snicker at and gloat over the Bills' fourth Superbowl loss in a row as it was to celebrate another Cowboys win (which probably had something to do with the fact that my best friend since Kindergarten was originally from just outside Buffalo and was a huge fan with Kelly posters and everything).

I'm not a Marlins, Yankees, Sox, or Cubs fan per se, but there's still something satisfying about watching epic failure streaks continue for the Cubs and Sox. I don't know how else to explain it.

I'm still pulling for Pudge Rodriguez, because he deserves it and because his success makes Tom Hicks and John Hart look even dumber.

Ben, I'm sad to see that your a BoSox fan, but I'm not sad for you. Go Yanks.

There is something to be said for wanting to see the Curse of the Bambino continue, but I desperately wanted to see the Cubbies make it to the Series, and despite being a lifelong Yankees fan would have almost wanted them to win the series despite being torn. See, the Cubbies have done nothing wrong in 95 years (although I'll admit as an observer of sports a Cubbies/BoSox series would have been historic, moreso than a Cubs/Yanks series) to deserve this drought.

I will say however that this BoSox Yanks series was exciting and quality sports, and the rivalry and controversy made it all the better.

In the words of all Red Sox fans "There is always next year" and with the offseason pickups ... it AGAIN looks to be the year.
