It was four years ago today.

Four, glorious, happy, thrilling, life-altering (in a sense) years ago when the Red Sox beat the Cardinals to win the 2004 World Series.

2007 was sweet.  It shut up everyone who said after 2004 “You won’t win for another 86 years!”.  But 2004 was magic.  And unless the Cubs win the World Series, no other fan base will truly understand what it meant to Red Sox fans.  I don’t care how egomaniacal that sounds, it’s true.

So thank you Red Sox.  For giving us that joy in 2004.  And for giving us the hope that it will happen again and again!
