I know that. The point I was trying to make was more along the lines of, it's ridiculous how overhyped teams like the Cubs and Red Sox get, and while I don't think any of us would want our team to get that level of obnoxious treatment, the reality is that the 05 Sox are every bit as deserving of it--if not more--than either of those teams.

And it's crazy that, because it's the Sox, ESPN would rather pretend they never happened so it doesn't ruin the storyline they want to push for teams they happen to like better. The Sox should be celebrated for what they did, not diminished to make the 04 Red Sox, 16 Cubs, or until last night, 17 Dodgers seem more exciting.
