Where were you when the Boston Red Sox won the 2004 World Series?
This was a great moment for me, and I am curious as to what other people recall.
I was in the National Training Center preparing for my ensuing deployment to Iraq the following year. It was the latter part of our training and we were allowed to use our electronics, to include cell phones. Already having witnessed the sweep of the Yankees despite being outnumbered by several senior enlisted and officers who favored the Evil Empire, I looked at play-by-play updates of the game until the final out against Edgar Renteria--sealing one of the proudest moments I've ever had as a fan.
I remember David Ortiz owning the entire playoffs. He is still awesome now, but I really liked watching him, Mueller, Manny, Nixon, and Damon playing together. Probably one of the better WS teams put out on a field over the last decade, or at the very least the most exciting. What a baseball postseason!!!
Watching at home. As an Oriole fan and confessed Yankee-hater, I was happy the Sox not only kicked the Yankees' butts, but won a World Series. I was happy for Red Sox Nation at the time, but they have since turned as pompous as Yankee fans.
I'll never forget it. I was on a business trip working in a small Alabama town. I grew up in New England but settled down in the Mid Atlantic area.
I was at a hotel watching the last game of the World Series and the Cardinal Fans looked confident that Boston would be cursed again. After so much heartbreak, I was going to enjoy the game no matter what happens.
It was late when the Red Sox won. I celebrated in silence and didn't want to disturb any hotel neighbors. I couldn't wait to get home and talk to other Red Sox fans.

How good will Adrian Gonzalez be with the Boston Red Sox?He was excellent in San Diego, but in Boston, in my opinion, he has the potential to be the second best 1B in the league behind only Albert Pujols, maybe third after Miguel Cabrera of Detroit.

Well on ESPN, it was discussed that the possibility behind the Red Sox's collapse was because of lack of team chemistry, obviously. However, one analyst cited that it seems like since the Red Sox won their first world series in decades under Francona that they abandoned their identity; which...

Tonight at 8 o' clock is the start of game 7 of the ALCS. Will the Red Sox pull of an amazing victory winning the division? Or, will the Rays make it to the World Series for the first time in franchise history?
