(Warning: The following is a rant. It is only a rant and in no way reflects a desire to do anything more than vent frustrations so that I can move on with my life again)
Bastards. What the Red Sox are. A huge bunch of cocky, arrogant SOB’s that, if there was any real justice in the world, would be crushed handily and taught a lesson in humility. They should thank their lucky stars that once again another playoff series win was served up on a silver platter. If the Angel’s hadn’t choked, they would have crushed them handily. Anyone who tells you other wise is clueless.
Boston. With their nation of smug, rude, obnoxious and nasty fans that deserve the same lesson in humility. For the record: There was no curse. The Sox just sucked for 86 years. They’ve had their wins now so it’s time once again to suck for another 86 years. Why must their fans feel they have the right to go into an opposing team’s stadium, get drunk and belligerent then incite riotous behavior by belittling opposing fans and trying to start fights? Rude beyond all compare. And, they do all of this in front of small children. What splendid role models!
Botched. What numerous calls against the Angels made by umpires were, including the one last night that ended the rally that ultimately ended the game. How much did Boston pay you umps to throw those games? And what about MLB? It’s in their best interest for Boston to be in World Series games (they rake in more money), so what culpability do they have? Seems they tend to do things like that (can we say, ignore steroids in baseball for years?) so I’ll stick with the conspiracy theory on this topic.
Bitter. How I feel about the fact that not only did my Angel’s choke in the playoffs AGAIN, but that (as stated above) there is no real justice in the world when teams like Boston continue to be handed rewards they didn’t truly earn nor deserve. As a team they aren’t good role models to young kids interested in the game with their rude smug comments and antics (just like their fans. I'm seeing a pattern). They only bring out the worst kinds of fans (See Boston). Cheering on the Red Sox is like cheering on Hitler or the Emperor. What kind of person wants to see the bad guys win? Evil.
Bandwagoners. What a lot of Red Soxs fans are. Just like a lot of Yankee fans, many have never even set foot in Boston and just join in to cheer because they win championships, not out of any sense of loyalty. The worst kind of sports fan who ruin the fun and excitement for the real fans. To those Dodgers fans who over the last few years have hopped on the Angels bandwagon: now that you’re team is doing better this year, please go back to them and stop spoiling it for the real Angel’s fans. Thank you.
Bounced. Something I’m sick and tired of seeing happen every post season. Something that management should do to the players that fall apart and can’t seem to come through when it matters most. Who cares about all the regular season accolades such as most saves, most holds, most RBI’s, most Home Runs, etc. when they can’t be carried over into the post season. Starting Pitching was all that seemed to show up for us...AGAIN. Ridiculous.
Boycott. What I intend to do to the rest of the playoff games as long as Boston continues their disrespectful run at another championship.
I hope the Rays or whoever wins the NL title manages to teach those punks a lesson once and for all. If I have to watch another Boston celebration on the field, I might just put my foot through my TV. While I would like a new flat screen, I’m not quite ready for it just yet. Of course, if it's the Dodgers that do the job it will be a bitter sweet crushing for me...almost equally upsetting, but with more embarrassment than anger.
