Congratulations to the 2004 Boston Red Sox. I was unbelievably happy when they beat the Yankees, but this tops it. I’m still dumbstruck.
Here’s a photo gallery from Boston.com of people’s babies in Red Sox gear. (I guess I’m not the only one who thought “Hey, all I had to do was have a baby to get them to win.”) My favorites are the painted face kids, and these twins who are totally into it.
Oh, and my new favorite Red Sox bootleg t-shirt (more than the Johnny Is My Homeboy shirt) is the “Ortiz Has A Posse” shirt I saw for 2 seconds in one of the celebrations on FOX (an homage to the classic Shepard Fairey Andre the Giant stickers). From what I can tell it used to be available at Sully’s Tees.com, but apparently they don't sell it any more. As I no longer live in Boston, I guess I’ll have to make an iron-on myself.
