Pennant Fever Strikes Region

by @ 8:22 am. Filed under Current Events, History

For the fourth time in my lifetime, the Red Sox are heading to the World Series. Like Tony yesterday, I feel compelled to write about the Sox. Having a major sports team achieve such success certainly perks up the region. Three years ago I remember writing that a study conducted during the Sox most recent trip to the Series found that business in Boston emergency rooms plummeted while the Sox were in the World Series. But because of the home town team’s World Championship just three years ago, this one seems a bit different, perhaps easier to enjoy. With “the curse” still in effect back in 2004, we all had to assume disaster would strike but, since the curse was broken that year, the chances of success seem so much greater. Anyway, here’s a quick review of the Red Sox World Series experience during the lives of the Baby Boomer Generation:

1967: St Louis Cardinals defeat Red Sox, four games to three. Bob Gibson was series MVP.

1975: Cincinnati Reds defeat Red Sox, four games to three. Pete Rose was series MVP.

1986: New York Mets defeat Red Sox, four games to three. Ray Knight was series MVP.

2004: Red Sox defeat St Louis Cardinals, four games to none. Manny Ramirez was series MVP.
