Boston Massacre II

Far be it from me to extol the virtues of references to mass murder in sports.  It’s done too often and it seems to trivialize life and death.  Nonetheless, since the US State Department has decided not to keep body counts of Iraqis (the current number is estimated to exceed 100,000), I don’t see how saying the Yankees kicked the dog-shit out of the Red Sox for five games trivializes much of anything.  If we’re not going to count real deaths, what’s the difference if we say the Red Sox began the weekend on life support and then took a cluster bomb up the poop shoot.

Kicked the dog-shit out of the Red Sox looks like this…

It’s not a payback for the 2004 ALCS.  Shit, I don’t need payback for that.  The Yankees have won the World Series 26 times.
