I'm not even going to watch these last two games. I'm just going to assume the season is over and I don't care. I'm just going to focus all of my attention on the Pats & B's and pretend the Sox don't exist until next April. I can't keep caring anymore, the frustration is unbearable at this point.

Thank you, I needed a hardy laugh! You're right, I was just thinking, I don't know if I can endure us making the playoffs and then losing miserably. It may be better for it all to end now. Put us out of our misery! And yet...why does some part of me think we can still win it all?

You guys must be kidding me. I assume you gave up hope in 04 as well. As a young red sox fan and son of an old one i know better than to give up hope. we can do this.

Keep the faith,

The NH Sox fan

If you're not questioning the Sox (who have a worse record than the Royals since the All-Star break...true story) than you're wearing some strong rose colored glasses.

As far as me giving up in 2004, nope. That was the birth of this site actually, and I had nothing but hope: http://www.sawxblog.com/2011/03/in-the-beginning-there-was-the-word.html

The real difference between '04 and '11 is that the Sox lost 3 games in a row and were against the wall in '04. This year they've lost for a whole month and are against the wall. A lot of people like to claim they never gave up in '04 - but that's not really how it was. No one truly did, but their hope and faith was paper thin - as it is now.

I hope you're right - and appreciate the optimism for sure (I was right there a few days ago).

Who here remembers 1978?

In my opinion, blowing a 14 game regular season lead is a far greater collapse than blowing a 3-0 ALCS lead. Sure, my opinion is predicated upon my view that far too much attention / weight is given to the post season.

However, in defense of the 78' Sox, they did win their last 8 and 14 of their last 15 to force the 1 game playoff with the Yankees.

    This was the first time I've been to a game with my Dad since the early 90's and it was just awesome, especially with everything that happened with my Mom a few weeks ago. I know she was watching the game with us and had to have been happy to see us happy.

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's
    Boston.com and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
