Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably know by now that the Boston Red Sox swept the World Series last night with a 4-3 win over the Colorado Rockies. No doubt John is among the hundreds of thousands of Red Sox fans celebrating today!
It had been 86 years before they won a world series championship back in 2004. Three years later, they have certainly proven their staying power – and also proven that they are no “one hit wonder”. Even Yankee fans have got to give these guys some credit! (Ok, I can see the virtual tomatoes flying my direction all the way from New York, but my point is you have to give ANY team credit for making it to the world series and winning it in a sweep!)
A few years ago, The White House held a ceremony honoring the ’04 Red Sox championship team. This guy happened to be there and he blogged about the experience in March of 2005. He apparently had a good vantage point to be able to see the President and the Red Sox players.
His “chief” complaint? Someone was blocking his view practically the whole time.
Hey, if I couldn’t see The President at the White House at a rally because of someone blocking my view, and that person turned out to be none other than John King, I sure as heck wouldn’t complain!
