Dueling Dynasties

Simply amazing. The Boston Red Sox have won their second World Series championship in four years and the New England Patriots are destroying every team put in front of them as they march to another Super Bowl. And the Sox once again did it with a four game sweep - I really thought the Rockies were going to make it a fight. I thought their amazing playoff run of winning every game (until they ran into the Red Sox) made them the team of destiny this year.

"Once in a lifetime" events are becoming common place in New England sports. This is just a remarkable time - but I'm sure glad I'm old enough to have lived through some of the heartbreaking years to appreciate this even more. Lots of kids growing up now will just expect this sort of magic every year. Who knows, maybe this will become an 86 year dynasty.
