Rockies vs. The Nation

Looks like the ALCS finally ended and the Rox now know who they'll be playing come Wed night. Obviously, the Sawwwhkks will be a tough foe, but boy, beating the Nation will make a World Series Championship that much sweeter. And with plenty of fans everywhere you turn, it shouldn't take much to turn up the hate dial for this series. Bring it. We boast a third of their payroll, have pretty much no playoff experience, and have had a long lay-off. I'm certain we'll be given no chance. On the plus side, we've got nothing to lose here and have only lost one game since mid September. T minus 3 days......go Rockies!!

Well we'll see how my WS rationalization about the Rox eventual (now decided) opponent works out.

Beating the Sox will be 5 times better than beating the Indians.

Losing to the Sox will be twice as bad as losing to the Indians.

If anyone needs an explanation as to how I came up with those numbers, I can explain...but you better be some kind of scientist.
Because it's backed by science.

yo troutdog.
noticed a ubiquitous, rowdy, assholey, pro-Sox commenter on the ESPN ROX/SOX threads today named "rdoherty007"

think it could be someone you know?

That sounds awfully suspicious, although I doubt Doherty is all that uncommon of a name in the boston area. I'm not sure the rdoherty I know has the know-how to use the internets.

I take that back, he's a prolific online poker player.
