    They Came, They Won, They Partied

    What happened in Colorado after the Sox left Coors field Sunday night?
    This comes to you from the Denver Post:
    The Boston Red Sox partied Sunday night like champs.

    The team wandered around the infield of Coors Field after their sweep for about 90 minutes, soaking in the out-of-town love. Then they headed to The Palm for a real celebration.

    Maroon 5, which played Monday and plays again tonight at the Fillmore, was in the restaurant earlier for dinner and agreed to play for free at the party - if they could hang out, being big Boston fans.

    The Palm was expecting about 200 people - and only if the Sox won. So the staffers didn't have much time to prepare for the fete, which drew about 500 people.

    "You could hardly move," said assistant manager Shana Broback. "It was pretty crazy in here."

    When the team came in around midnight, Maroon 5 broke into "We Are the Champions." The joint went wild. The band followed it up with its hits "This Love" and "Harder to Breathe."

    The entire team was at the party - except Manny Ramirez, who doesn't care for these things. Big Papi climbed onto a table to deliver an expletive-laden speech to teammates and fans. The crowd ate finger food and crab cakes, washed down with champagne, wine, beer and plenty of Grey Goose. Stars in the mob included Rene Russo and Bostonian Michael Chiklis, star of "The Shield."

    The party didn't break up until 4 a.m. At least we sent the Sox home with hangovers.

    oh please

    So now people hate us like we have always hated the Yankees?
    This comes to us from Seattle:

    It is Halloween and These Things Scare Me:

    It's not America, it's Red Sox Nation. Is it too late to call our old, tyrannical friends at the British Empire and ask back in? For many of us cannot understand how one night we all went to sleep in the United States and the next day we awakened in Red Sox Nation.

    Like a bad flu, Red Sox fans are everywhere and spreading.

    I would rather be stuck in a grain elevator with Kid Rock and Tommy Lee than in a sports bar with Stephen King and Doris Kearns Goodwin.

    I don't even go to the supermarket anymore for fear of being accosted near frozen foods by a Red Sox fan. And I live in Los Angeles.

    When they whined about The Curse of the Bambino, Red Sox fans were self-pitying but somewhat lovable. These days, they are just cocky and obnoxious

    Message to FOX

    Please stop playing the "Cleveland Rocks" music when going to commercial every time a Cleveland player makes it on base even though they are getting blown out in a game.

    UPDATE:
    with the score 8-1 I have my doubts I will hear "cleveland rocks" again tonight.

    While You Were Sleeping


    1 2 3

    The Red Sox made history last night becoming the first time in playoff history to hit back to back to back home runs.

    No word if it was the first time in history that a team hit three meaningless homers in the same inning.
