I was in my room, listening on my radio. I was 14, lived in Massachusetts... as a Yankees fan.
This will sound inmature, but I really believed the Red Sox were cursed. You believe in alot of things at a young age. I was taunted alot in school, but my comeback was that the Yankees had 26 world championships since 1918, the Red Sox had none.
That's how I was until I heard on the weei announcer say "Ground ball. Stabbed by Foulke! He throws it on to first....... and the Boston Red Sox have won the World Series!!"
I was taunted alot after that, and my family eventually moved for other reasons. But now I realize that this was a tremendous moment for all Red Sox fans, including those fans who did not live to see it happen. I respect them for that. The Yankees fans and Red Sox fans may be different, but we share one thing; we have a tremendous amount of pride for out teams and love baseball.
I pray that Cubs fans will have the same experience of winning soon.
