Everybody, say it with me now.
"The Boston Red Sox haven't won the World Series since 11:40 pm EDT last night!"
St. Louis let Scott Stapp sing "God Bless America," which probably really pissed God off.
I want to fly back to Boston for the parade on Saturday so badly. McKern's going. Lucky bastard.
The Red Sox' gaudy, well-earned rings will be handed out in a ceremony April 11 when the 2004 World Series championship flag is raised above Fenway Park for the  home opener.
The team in the third-base dugout for that historic event? The New York Yankees.
