Somewhat like the '04 ALCS.
    Patriots just recently started winning again. I'd say they are more like the Twins. Bellicheck is much smarter than Torre, but no manager in Mlb really resembles a Coach in Nfl. I do agree that Red Sox resemble the Colts, except they have no one like Peyton Manning (do NOT say Manny).

    • The Yankees are obviously better. 26-6. Says it all. 26-6. At this pace, the Yankees will have 113 by the time the Red Sox have 26.

        • A Bears fan in Colts country

          Interesting analogy, but Bellicheck is more like Pigpen from Peanuts than he is like Torre, (who has resembled Charlie Brown as a manager lately.)

          I've been a fan of the Bears since the days of Papa Bear Halas (a former NY Yankee ), Jack Concannon (who was traded from the Eagles for Mike Neanderthal Ditka!), Gale Sayers, Dick Butkus, Brian Piccolo, and coaches Dooley and Gibron. As a side note, slo-mo Concannon was the first round pick of the AFL Boston Patriots, but opted for the NFL. I still remember the Patriots having the best iron man in the AFL: QB Gino Cappelletti who played in all 140 games for the Pats during their AFL existence.

          Everyone around here is Colts crazy , but I haven't been a fan of theirs since they snuck out of Baltimore in their infamous midnight Mayflower move.:grouchy For the last week I've been wearing my Chicago Bears jacket to work, and have been greeted with mostly "Go Bears, Da Bears,etc." although I have had a few snowballs hurled in my general direction. I'd rather watch the Caribbean Winter League series than the not-so Super Bowl, but I am looking forward to the always creative advertising.

                • No sign of life in the Yankees franchise...they're thinking of giving up Carl Pavano for someone. Who is it? I don't know. Probably trade him for a job at McDonalds to help the Yankees' campaign to finish 2nd or 3rd.

                        I think Mattingly is behind this. The chameleon strikes again.

                          • I will cause any trouble to those that want the Red Sox to finish in third place. Here are the following consequences to the Yankees, should they wish the Red Sox finish in 3rd and they finish 1st:

                            * Derek Jeter getting traded to Washington for Cristian Guzman.
                            * Mariano Rivera disappears from the Yankees to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
                            * Jason Giambi heads to Kansas City by being claimed on waivers.
                            * Melky Cabrera is in a...Cincinnati Reds uniform because they wanted Adam Dunn.

                            Basically, Cashman needs to remove the deadweights on the team so they don't get like 100 people playing one position. Giambi isn't going to do much anymore.

                              I hereby wish that Beantown finishes in 4th place, behind lowly Baltimore. Now whatcha gonna do?
