    They are already saying that this will go down as the best post-season comeback in American sports history

    Go Sox Go!

    Here is a funny my son sent me:

    nd now for all of you still bleary-eyed after last night's


    A Boston Red Sox fan, a Chicago Cubs fan and a NY Yankees fan were all in

    Saudi Arabia performing military duty for the US Army.

    While off base, they were caught sharing a smuggled case of booze. All of

    a sudden Saudi police rushed in and arrested them. The mere possession of

    alcohol is a severe offense in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime

    they were sentenced to death.

    With the help of

    good lawyers, they were able to successfully appeal their sentence down to

    life imprisonment.

    By a stroke of luck, a benevolent Sheik decided that they could be

    released after receiving just 20 lashes of the whip.

    As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheik said, "It's my 1st

    wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each one of you one

    wish before your whipping".

    The cubs fan was

    1st in line (he had drunk the least), so he thought about this for a while

    and then said, "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but the

    pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. The cubs fan

    was carried away bleeding and crying.

    The Yankees fan was up next (he almost finished an entire 5th by himself),

    and after watching the scene, said "OK please fix 2 pillows to my back."

    But even 2 pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through

    again, sending the Yankee fan crying like a baby.

    The Red Sox fan was the last up ( he had finished off the crate- given his

    allegiance, who could blame him), but before he could say anything, the

    Sheik turned to him and said "you support the greatest baseball team in

    the world, your supporters are the best and most loyal fans in all the

    world. For this you may have 2 wishes"

    "Thanks, your most royal highness'" the Red Sox fan replied.

    "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not

    20, but 100 lashes.

    "Not only are you an honorable, powerful man, you are also very brave,"

    said the Sheik. "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your

    second wish? What is it to be?" the Shiek asks..

    To which the Red Sox fan replied... "Tie the Yankee fan to my back."

    Those Red Sox fans are pretty smart, hee,he

    I left work at 8pm, just like last night. When I got home everyone was upstairs like last night. I still went into our downstairs bedroom looking for them, just like last night.

    Just like last night, my daughter and wife were in her bed reading stories. I gave them both kisses just like last night, three for sweet pea (and a hug) and one for my wife. My son came downstairs after me and said "I had to play Madden on the XBox, like last night". I said ?Good call, thanks son?

    Like last night, the "Comforter with special powers" was on the couch waiting. Oozing out it's special powers over the two players who needed it the most - Damon and Bellhorn.

    Ortiz and Damon go deep early and suddenly it's 6-0 and the whole house is humming. I can't take my eyes off the TV. Could this really be happening?

    Lowe keeps mowing down the Yankees. The power of the Yankee line up gets up and gets put down.

    It's 10pm, my son goes upstairs to work out, like last night. I say nothing, because I didn't last night.

    I kept in constant contact with the comforter with special powers. Running out for beer only between innings. I?m not making that mistake again. No sir.

    The combined power of the Red Sox and the CwSP got them into the lead, but then the ghost of Babe Ruth started whispering into the ear of the Red Sox coach. "Put in Pedro, put in Pedro" The Babe knew from last year it was his best chance to keep the Sox down. Pedro came in as even the power of the comforter couldn't overcome the moronically stupid moves of a coach. The Yankees score 2 making it 8 - 3. But after the mini comeback the CWSP again moved onto Bellhorn and his homer quieted the Yankee crowd.

    Timlin comes in. It's the eighth inning. I notice a large sore bump on my head. Apparently a vampire bat or a leech from a local pond crawled into the house and up my body and sucked on my head without me noticing. But I don?t take my eyes off the TV or lose contact with the CwSP.

    I notice that my feet have left the couch, where the CwSP resides and are on the coffee table, I quickly pull them back and Timlin pitches even better. I don't make that mistake again.

    Two more runs for the beloved Red Sox.

    The 9th and then it's over with a throw from Pokie Reese to first base.

    I smile, as I will always remember this moment. We did it. All of us. You, me the CwSP and the men on the field. There is much joy in Red Sox Nation tonight.

    I'm so gosh darn happy I think I'm going to cry. How can I sleep?

    Here is the Comforter with Special Powers basking in the glory of victory. And a night shot. Going to bed but the comforter will stay out until after the World Series

    Damn good story. I hope to hear more about the comforter with special powers soon.

    So does anyone want to spend the day going over the game pitch by pitch? (besides me)

  • confusedjw

    Anyone heard of any Yankees fans throwing themselves off of the top of stadium?
