The whole "good to be a Boston fan" thing is shooting past the "f-ing ridiculous" level this week.  Just to recap:

  • Papelbon riverdances his way to the World Series
  • Pats playing as if someone's controlling them in Madden with all the attribs pumped up
  • Eagles football has put the BC in BCS (for now), and have a monster game vs. VT this weekend
  • Celtics bench looking fairly solid in preseason... and that's all they need
  • Joe Torre just told the Yankees where to stick their rolled-up contract
  • Even the lowly shitball Bruins just shut out the Rangers

Look at what's slipping through the cracks while the Pats and Sox are playing so well.

The Bruins actually look competent!!!  They could actually be okay!  If a bunch of bums win a bunch of hockey games in the woods, does anyone care?

Or look at BC football!  What if BC runs the table and lands in the championship game?  They won't, and the winning streak probably ends on Saturday... but what if it doesn't?  Will that even be enough to get anyone to give a shit about BC football?  Probably not.  But it's fun to imagine how many college football diehard morons would see their teams fall by the wayside, only to watch BC win with no fans at all.

The point is, it doesn't get much better than this without actual trophies being handed out.  I'm floating.  And the insanity of this planetary alignment has not been lost on me in the least.  This is gonna be a good, good month.


  • Don't forget the Revs... the bizarre goal Parkhurst scored on Saturday?

    (Yeah, I would never have heard about this if not for Deadspin. What is this 'fut bol'?)
