Boston Never Stronger; Sox Are World Champs!

Hey, we had it all the way! What Bobby Valentine? What Chicken and Beer? The most resilient team in Red Sox history has pulled off another World Championship for Boston—the third ring in ten years. From 69 wins last year to 108 this year, this hirsute group of Idiots II were as tight as any baseball team can be. Tonight's heroes were: John Lackey (6 2/3 innings, 1 run) and Shane Victorino (three-run wall double, 4 RBIs), but in truth, all 25 brought it home in the 6-1 triumph. This one truly was redemption for this group of players, this franchise, and most importantly the City of Boston. Boston Strong. And, now, stronger than ever.
