Sports Thoughts of the Day

With the World Series wrapped up, and the Patriots juggernaut in full motion, the fatuous question of the week from the broadcast sports media is whether Boston sports fans are bothered by the idea of being the Yankees.

Nope.

First, there's the matter of dues paid, something the Yankees don't know much about (another reason to like the Mets if you have to follow a New York team).

Second, the Yankees have still got an enormous record of success behind them, of a sort Boston fans have just begun to taste.

Third, it's good to be the king.

If you're having a cow over Mike Lowell, would you just zip it for a few days? I need some sleep.

As for the Patriots scoring machine, I'm guessing that Belichick has read his Macbeth.

I have been reading this fretting stuff about whether the Sox fans have permanently shifted to this new mode. I hope to hell they have and that the team wins some more division and WS titles.

The arrogance and swagger I can take. It was whining, Ruth, Billy Buck, the Yankees big payroll, blah blah. No more excuses. They can win and crow. That's fine. Just have the balls to react to losing by saying, "The other team played better." We big kids now and that's what big kids do.

BTW, I'm all for Torre going to the Dodgers and having a Yankees-Dodgers rivalry get going again. That would add a classic spark to a sport that has had too many accountants of late.

I like the Mets, but they just didn't fill that spot.

Oh, yeah. Sandy Kofax! The Dodgers were great to root for or against.
