    Yeah, that was one year. Beantown, before 2 seasons ago (which obviously didn't count, you'll have to understand) has *ALWAYS* lost Game 7. ALWAYS!

    Now then, where can I get a Fenway Frank from? I hear they're a bit scarce around this time of year.

    Oh yeah, when does Daylight Savings Time go into effect again? Spring forward, fall backwards. Gee, where have I heard that before?

    Hiya, Ken!

    The New York Yankees choked in four different years this century: 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2005. 3-0 lead in 2004 quickly became a 3-3 tie due to poor planning on New York's part. 2003 was because of current Sox Josh Beckett. As for 2001 and 2005, we all know what happened those two years.
    Which captain of a certain NY team has twice as many rings as the entire history of the unwanted stepkids of a "team" crosstown? The one that doesn't get the love, despite being in the same town.

    When was the last time the Mets won a WS? In 1986, and only with the help of the Immortal Babe Ruth.

    Now then, praise Mookie, blame Billy Buck (although Schirardi goes down as the only MLB pitcher to have having lost both Games 6 & 7 of a WS, especially when he was 1 strike away on *SEVERAL* batters in Game 6).

    Now then, please feel free to praise the Mighty Yankees, who are rulers of the free world and the favored team in Gotham.

      (Always? Not in 2004!)

      Hiya, Ken!
      Many teams have lost game 7's and many will more will do so in the future.

      But the
      2004 Yankees stand alone and probably always will . . .

      As THE biggest CHOKE in the history of ALL professional sports!

      BTW, we won the last 7th game we played.

      Too bad you can't say the same . . .

      • Trivia for Mattingly: Who lost Game 6 in the 2003 World Series and Game 7 of the 2004 ALCS -- BOTH at home that eliminated this team AND was favored heavily to win it? My teams last won in 1982 and '86, but I have that feeling they're going to win again.

        And here's a photo to prove how BADLY you guys choked during the 2004 ALCS:



        And here's 2003's version:



        I guarantee that the 26-time World champions won't stand a chance against the Sox next year. As a bonus, I MUST show this picture!

        • Tommy Lasorda showed up at my house today and finnaly persuaded me to unlock myself from the basement,which I had been since I saw the O's trainers pouring the gatorade out on the field after the final game of the Red Sox season was ended abruptly, and start cheering against some "certin" teams. Anyways, LET'S GO TIGERS/METS!

                  OK, now we have to scare up a Jays fan...tall order!!
                  I'll take the slightly better draft pick over finishing a meaningless 2nd place, thank you.
                  Oh, that's right, the draft has no meaning to the Yankees, sorry.

                    Might I say that an embarrassing THIRD PLACE FINISH really doesn't guarantee a really good draft pick. Also, who's gonna be your closer now that Bon-Bon's in the rotation? Keith Foulke or Craig Hansen? Since you seem a little short on closers, prehaps a FA signing? Oh wait! Who in their right mind would go to a third place team? And what about Barry Zito? Why would he even consider signing with the Sox? And the Red Sox have a long history of futility. Enjoy this. http://www.soxsuck.com/losses.html

                      It didn't happen. Who beat Beantown in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS? Which other NY team beat Bahstunned in Games 6 & 7 of the 1986 WS?

                      They happened.

                        Dude, you can't even get your photos right. That's a pic of then Mets manager, Bobby Valentine around 2002. The ump ejected him, so he snuck back onto the dugout wearing a Groucho mask, so he had to pay a fine, as he was supposed to be in the clubhouse. Doggonit, even Bubba Gump, Grady Little would laugh at ya!

                        #6 would be that we let you folks win. Here's to another 86 years of the loserboyz and losergirlz taking it hard for their team.

                        Yanks will have NY champagne. The Beantowners will have have the Mass whine! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

                        You only go around once, and the Sawx have already used up their quota of having been around.

                            Ages ago? In 2005, the Red Sawx got swept in the ALDS. At least we won 2 games.

                            Now then, please mark your calendars, and look gleefully ahead, as 2090 isn't really that far away. Smile, you're on Nitwit Camera!

                            When your team is toasted, and you're being roasted. You're on Nitwit Camera!

                            Sing along, chil-dren. And celebrate those Invincible Noo Yawk Yan-keez, who'll win #27 this season!

                            I hereby dedicate the 27th Yankee WS ring to you, my friend.

                            BTW, where's the pix of the 1918 Sawx team celebrating? Oh yeah, cameras were scarce back then. So were parades and chowda. I'll bet golf courses weren't the following year in New England.
