Trite but true

With all 3 major sports teams rolling, it is a great time to be a sports fan in Boston.

As we all know by know, The Bosox completed the 1-3 comeback against the Indians last night by hammering their two aces, Sabathia and Carmona, and winning the 3 final games by a combined score of 30-5. Going into the postseason, the common sentiment was that the four AL teams (Boston, Cleveland, New York, Los Angeles) were all better than the four NL teams (Colorado, Arizona, Chicago, Philadelphia), but that was before the Rockies added 7 straight wins to their tear. Also, the Rockies took 2 of 3 from the Red Sox and were 5-1 in interleague play in general (they also swept the Yanks in a 3 game set). They have a good chance to keep things going if the Sox take them too lightly.

The Patriots are busy destroying all of their opponents while Tom Brady is putting an end to the debate about who is the best QB in the league. Yesterday they led Miami 42-7 (!!) at the half before changing the guard and putting in Matt Cassel. They put Brady back in in the 4th quarter (seemingly just to run up the score, some might beg to differ) and he responded by promptly throwing another touchdown, giving him a personal record of 6, in barely over alf f a game. His record for touchdowns in a single season is 28. He stands at 27 right now (through 7 games).

And we all know how good the Celtics are.

...And the Revolution have clinched home field in the playoffs? Great...
