After 86 long years, the Boston Red Sox finally broke the so-called "Curse of the Bambino" by winning Major League Baseball's 2004 World Series Championship. And what better way to do it by sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals in four games to nothing! Just 10 days ago, the Sox were just 3 outs away from again becoming the Yankee's doormat. But like a Hollywood sports movie script, they dramatically climbed from 3-0 down to tie the series at 3-3 and eventually winning Game 7 to clinch the ALCS pennant at the expense of their all time arch-nemesis, the New York Yankees. How sweet it is!

I was in Boston four years ago when they were having a good run. Everybody at the office were hopeful that it could be their year. Then the playoffs came and the Sox just disappeared into oblivion. Year after year, they've always looked good on paper and then year after year also, they've disappointed the Red Sox Nation.

But today, the curse is gone, if there was ever such. I'm sure my friends in New England are now delirious with joy! I am too.
