The Eighteenth Brumaire of Johnny Damon

PSA for those of you fresh to the bandwagon: the Sox will lose the World Series. See, there is nothing particularly "poetic" about being a Sox fan; it is a condition that requires only a pure, unfeigned pessimism, nourished by icy, dark winters, stony soils, atrocious diets, and a century of spectacular failures. [Ed.-- You forgot heavy drinking.] There is nothing cynical about it, because it's true. [The relevant comparisons are to game six -- your pick]. This, of course, should not interfere with your joy at the Yankees' immensely pleasurable collapse. [Photo courtesy of Uncle Martino, and don't miss the pumpkin, via #1hs].
