    The Boston Red Sox WILL Win the World Series! I'm taking bets!!

    Okay, we've probably all come to realize that the official currency of AR is a two sided coin comprised of respect and humiliation. Because of this (and the fact I don't want to get jason in trouble for starting a "real" gambling ring on AR) I'm currently taking bets on the subject of this title...but you gotta give the respect of odds by making your side of the bet somewhat more severe. For example:

    The Red Sox don't win the WS and you get to pick the avatar I'll have up for a month, but they do and get to pick your avatar, location and signature for that month...something to that effect.

    Want me to change my avatar? Post a pic of myself in some foolish situation (with proof it's me)? ANYTHING at all (within reason)? Either post it openly or PM me...in the next week or so I'll officially post the two or three bets I've elected to take (of course, there is no risk to me as the curse of the bambino falls this October!!!!!!!!!!!)

    the sox have no chance in hell bro. if they win, well, ill let them change the senior member tag of mine to big greens bitch. if they loose, you owe me all the gear you plan on runnin in your next cycle...sound like a fair bet? of course if you say no then it only adds to my growing suspicion that you are not that confident in your beloved soxs' ability. prepare to be humiliated bro...

    HAHAHA! Good one BG!

    Damn BG, and all this time I actually thought you were SMART!! Hell, my 6yr old has better sense than that, (she thinks the Astro's are going, poor kid, I don't know WHERE she got that idea! )

    Nothing personal against the Bean boys, I'd sure rather see them there than the Yankees or Braves! (my two favorite teams to hate!)

    Thanks for the laugh, and I can't WAIT to see your new avatar!!

    Bro..having been born and raise just outside of Boston...I am a long true, faithful and die-hard Red Sox. Cletic, Pats, Bruins fan.

    I will tell you I have seen first hand..up close and personal the Bill Buckner between the legs blunder, I experienced the Pudge Fisk hommer down the left field line. Yaz's heroic efforts...Bernie Carbo's afro...hell I even remember when Pumpsie Green was the very first black player the sox ever had.

    Simply stated...they will not win the series this year. I wish it weren't so. I wish the Sox would beat the fuck out of the Yankees and give the Rocket something memorable to retire upon....It ain't gonna happen...
    I remain....
    A living, breathing Red Sox fan 'till I die...Which will probably be before the Sox win the series.

    Seattle Mariners will take it this year. It's their turn. I'll bet you an empty bottle of QV Test. =)

    That's a good prediction...[EXCESS runs out of the room and closes the door][EXCESS runs back into the room]...its very possible the Red Sox will win...[EXCESS runs out again]

    I want my SOX to Win , Very likely that the red sox will be trading casey fossum and Freddie Sanchez to the Expos for Vasquez.
    So you got Pedro, Lowe, Vasquez, as yoru starting 3 in those short post season series, and KIM closing! Too bad the rest of the BP sucks.

    Nobody in the American league( maybe bjays) can knock the hell out of the ball like us.

    I don't see it happening BG. I am impressed at the timing of your prediction though. I never thought they would make the playoffs.

    As a transplanted Clevelander (originally), I have a special place in my heart for the Sox and Yankees. But I can, if forced, look at this objectively. If I had to make a prediction, I guess I would go with the Cubbies. I would have said the A's a few days ago, but they are not playing very well lately. And BLT makes a good point: Prior and Wood look almost unhittable lately.

    Regardless of what you all think....sox are choke artists. Good offense but a pitching staff (Especially bullpen) that is embarassing.

    I was at one of the games vs. White Sox. Complete game shut out by Colon.

    as long as the cubs don't win i don't care...it is nice to see the hometowns of the random teams that got to the 2nd round of the playoffs energized though.

    i think the yankees will disappoint a ton of people by taking it all again. thats life folks.

    Sox haven't won since 1918. Cubs are the ones who haven't won since 1908.

    Sorry Calipso, got my facts backwards, all I know its still 85 years so bottom line is its been a long LONG time... I am a die hard yankees fan and like daem said "i think the yankees will disappoint a ton of people by taking it all again. thats life folks." Its inevitablility.

    Yankees and Steinberner control the MLB world. Sorry to say Sox won't be in the World Series.
