You write a story about how the Sox went from worse to first without using the word "again."

The backstory to this is a ski trip I took to Alta, Utah in February, 2005. The day after the Super Bowl, I was in line to get lunch on the mountain when I saw a guy wearing a Red Sox hat near me. I congratulated him on the Patriots' victory the night before and commented that they had some good sports mojo in Boston. He agreed. I then told him that the headlines that coming Octobe will say "Sox win the World Series, but won't say 'again'." He looked at me confused (I was wearing a White Sox hat, by the way) and then smiled.

Wish I could have seen his face on October 26th that year.....
