Some enterprising Webophile has seamlessly blended the seven ALCS game threads from Sons of Sam Horn and NYYFans, the Red Sox and Yankees message boards.

The game threads are something to read on both sides

I luv game threads. Thx for the linkys. The Game 7 thread is hilarious. Ah yes, that magical first inning -- the stake through the heart for Yankeedom. My neighbours didn't need to be watching the game to know when Ortiz homered. :redface:

I had forgotten how angry I was at Dale (graduate of the Wendell Kim Coaching School) Sveum when Damon was thrown out at the plate.

I took that as a sign of impending doom and prepared to witness the awful horror once again. Then Big Papi came to the plate... :bandance:

If somebody could only find a good Cubs board then we could do the same thing with the 2003 NLCS. :D:

I loved reading the message boards during the playoffs, especially the WS. I was actually pleased at how many Red Sox fans were very amicable towards Cards fans, and in particular how some of the RS fans were telling the Cubs fans to **** and stop acting like they won something. I was like, "Yeah! Damn straight!" :thumbsup:

The interesting part of the Game 7 threads is even in the beginning the role reversals were in place. The Boston fans felt everything was in their favor and the Yankees fans saw impending doom.

One thing the Boston and NYY fans could agree on was that McCarver and Buck were horrific.


Reliving Damon's Grand Slam in Game 7 just made my day

I know this much, I will never agasin in my life have 4 days from the end of Game 3 through Game 7. I can remember the morning after Game 3 ( the 19-8 loss) reading the Globe at Starbucks and looking at everybody who had the same deer in the headlights look. Any Boston fan who says on that morning they thought the team would win Game FOUR let alone the next 4 is a liar.

Bob Ryan on that Sunday morning wrote.....

Well, in case you haven't noticed, it's not. The Red Sox have laid a brontosaurus egg in the American League Championship Series. They are down, 3-0, after last night's 19-8 rout, and, in this sport, that is an official death sentence. Soon it will be over, and we will spend another dreary winter lamenting this and lamenting that. Sure, you can root for the National League team to defeat the Yankees, but just exactly how satisfying is that going to be? When Red Sox seasons end, people normally focus on the tragic endings, the great what-ifs? Not this time. The Yankees took immediate control of this series in the first inning of the first game last Tuesday.
August seems a long time ago. The Anaheim series seems a long time ago. The idea that the Red Sox accomplished anything good at all this season seems inconceivable. The only thing that resonates now is the idea that, once again, the Red Sox have been beaten by the Yankees, this time in an incredibly undignifed manner.


Nothing good has come from this. Nothing. We all wanted the Yankees. What, dare I say it, idiots we all were.

I am sure you must have the same problem with posters from Vineland ( are their any good Cub boards? ) but I have seen nothing that compares to Boston and NYY fans going at it on each others team boards.

A couple of days ago the owner of nyyfans.com did an interview with redsoxnation.net
