Armageddon in the Bronx, or Just Another Series?
After weeks of hand-wringing, fate-tempting and a general feeling of anxiousness mixed with angst, it is finally upon us. Yankees-Red Sox. At the Stadium. Was it really just a week and a half ago when columnists and pundits were wondering just how good the Red Sox really were? And if it was 1978 all over again? Yes it was, and now? The Bronx, as you may have heard, is burning and Reggie and Billy are nowhere to be found.
Spanked Yanks Limp Home to face Boston is the headline on nypost.com. But have no fear Yankee-lovers, Goose Gossage says there is still time for the Pinstripes to come back. Well, that must be comforting.
Meanwhile NY Times oddball Murray Chass is mainly mum, but he references his email from Red Sox fans, a sure sign that the columnist has nothing much to say.
Yup, the whole thing has that anti-climactic feel to it and for Red Sox fans, that is a good thing.
