The Globe’s X-Mass Spirit

WWJD? WWJDD? It’s a safe bet neither would call the Yankee owner a “dunderhead” on Christmas Eve, but it hasn’t stopped the Globe from doing just that in a holiday bitchslap editorial. But it’s not just the Boss who gets it. According to the paper, RSN needs to “unlearn all their superstitions about grace and doom, which local pessimists assign respectively to New York and Boston despite the Great Inversion of October 2004.” What else? Jonathan Papelbon is “destined…as the next Roger Clemens.” Hope springs eternal.

With that we wish one and all, SFs and YFs, a most merry Christmas and happy Hanukkah.

  • Corinthians 12:16 reads as follows:
    “And the Lord hath sent the runner to the second station, whilst Jesus stands at the manger. But Jesus misseth the sign from yonder path, and the runners fall badly into a reigning king, waiting for his arrival. The goddamned overpriced dunderhead screwed up the hit and run”.

  • I think that’s Corinithians 6-4-3.

  • Think of it this way: If Theo returns to Fenway like Achilles returning to the plains of Troy, if newcomer Jonathan Papelbon fulfills his destined role as the next Roger Clemens, and if the Bosox find a shortstop somewhere and a center fielder to replace Damon, New Englanders may realize that the end of days was never as near as it seemed.
    That’s a lot of BIG ifs.
