The Red Seat is awesome. I've said this many times before, I know; but I just got an email from them today. Granted, the reason for the email was to advertise their new "Old School" jacket, but, as usual, most of their email was hilarious and timely.

Now our World Series preview/comparison to help you understand why the Red Sox are 2-1 favorites:

Team Colors:
Sox: Red, white and blue
Rocks: Purple. Come on. There's no purple in baseball!
Edge: Red Sox

Ballpark:
Boston: Fenway Park
Colorado: Coors 'Lite' Field
Edge: Red Sox

Zeitgeist:
Colorado: Rocktober!
Boston: Papelbon Dance Party
Edge: Red Sox

Historical Significance:
Boston: Birthplace of American Independence
Colorado: Birthplace of Coors Frost Brew Liner
Edge: Red Sox

Regional Renown:
Denver is noted for its mile-high status, thin air and Red Lobsters
Boston boasts Bunker Hill, the Atlantic Ocean, and Real Lobsters
Edge: Red Sox

Technology:
Boston has MIT
Colorado's server crashes when they sell World Series tickets
Edge: Red Sox

Prediction:
Red Sox in 5 only because Wake is hurt and has been scratched from the WS roster. It still goes to the 10th where Gagne blows the save.


They're awesome because they're us.

Oh, and PS? The Dugout also rules. Especially this one. "Champagne is the devil's cider," indeed.

I have "Big in Japan," "Green Monster," "Sweet Caroline," "Mind of a Sox Fan," and my absolute favourite, "Big Papi Kapow!"

I got Dave "Pesky Pole: Hero/Zero" last year for Christmas. This year he's getting a "Battling Evil for the Good of the Game" coffee mug.

I may just have to order the "regime change" and the Game 4 redux shirts.

They are the best Sox shirt makers. I think it's because they're as much about Fenway as they are about baseball.

Totally agree with that. I have the Dice K shirt (didn't you order that one too?)
from them, of course in Japanese.

Think I may have to wear that one to work today since I can wear it
under the Apple t-shirt that I have to wear when I am out
behind the Genius Bar.

I have the "Big in Japan" one. I love the imagery so much.
I told you to save the Dice-K shirt for when he's pitching. Dude needs the mojo like whoa.

OMG-there's a newer one, "things to do in Denver when you're Manny. "
