The Yankees won the World Series in 1951, but their accomplishment was overshadowed by the Giants’ dramatic pennant win over the Dodgers, courtesy Bobby Thompson’s Shot Heard ‘Round the World. “The Giants win the pennant. The Giants win the pennant. The Giants win the pennant…” And so this year’s World Series will also come as something of an afterthought. Sox-Yanks was a championship unto itself, a battle for the ages. What could possibly live up to that drama? We’re still recovering and euphoric. Sympathies to SF and the rest of The Nation. Losing should not have to be that cruelly painful.
