I read the ST this morning, with every sports mediot "praising" this team, the team mentality, Ozzie as a manager, etc etc etc....and I laughed out loud. I have not felt this calm and reserved since there was a 14 game lead before the ASB....and it's not arrogance. It borders on sadness, actually...where was all this confidence all season from the public? Where was the belief? Where was the long term vision?

One place - HERE. It's always been here. For that, WSI, HATS OFF TO US ALL.

Take Game 1, show the country that:

We. Still. Don't. Care.

Are you serious? No, you can't be. This place was completely dominated by Dark Clouds. The few of us that believed in the Sox were regularly excoriated. There are post game threads from meaningless losses to KC that are longer than our clinching and playoff post game threads. This place was a disaster area and a nightmare for the staff. This is either serious revisionist history or you need to put down the:

I agree. This board has been dominated by the Dark Clouds and depressoid psychos for years. It has been going on since I've been here, and I don't imagine that things were any different before then. The FOHF have tried again and again to control this board, and there have been periods when they've all but taken complete control of the website. There were mornings I came here and found nothing but "the world is coming to an end" threads, or "this team will never win anything" rants.

I avoided WSI during the turbulence because of all the negative hysteria. Can the rain stormers at least now become aware of the up and down, rollercoaster ride that is beisbol?
