Sox fans agree -- It's not the end of the world

BOSTON -- A year later, Red Sox fans seem to be saying that Manny Ramirez was right, after all.

Last year, with the Sox down three games to one in the ALCS against the Indians, Ramirez said famously: "It doesn't happen, so who cares? There's always next year. It's not like it's the end of the world."

Red Sox fans weren't happy.

The Red Sox are down three games to one again, but now it's the fans who seem to think it's not the end of the world if it doesn't happen.A story in today's Boston Globe says tickets are seling for barely above face value, and sometimes even under face. The story confirms what a lot of us who have been in Boston are sensing, which is that Red Sox fans just don't seem all that concerned that their team is losing the series.

The Globe story even quotes one man as saying Sox fans are now "complacent" and another saying: "I think the season has now ended; they should pack up and go home and come back in the spring."

Wow. Even Ramirez didn't suggest skipping Game 5 and going home.

I agree, it is not the end of the world but what a game to sit back and watch! With all that is going on today it almost makes you forget about everything else. Yes, it is only a game but when I turned my hat backwards and inside out in hopes of a comeback from a 7-0 deficet, and it happened, it was truly beautiful. I don't think I have been this excited about a ball game since Willie Stargell hit his 3-run homer against Baltimore in 1979 to win the World Series in game 7.

You know what's funny... it's so unbelievably hard to get tickets for a regular season game... I didn't even try tonight.  I wish it wasn't the case, but seriously, college students (like myself), working class folks, and even middle class people have been priced out by ticketing agencies and scalpers.  It's sad really, because I would have LOVED to be in Fenway tonight.  I, for one, am tired of the fairweather folks that can snatch up tickets and leave the park after five innings.

I agree...it's not the end of the world.  I can't even imagine recapturing the feeling after the 2004 season or the horror that ended the 2003 season.  I am never complacent and always want more but will admit that I just wanted to see one before I died and I am only 38. 

There's just so much more going on in the world right now.  If they weren't struggling, it would be a nice distraction from it all but watching them get clobbered over and over wasn't exactly a good distraction.  I am happy they pulled this one out.  It was an amazing comeback.
