Publisher's note: As if they really needed to, the Boston Red Sox cemented the end of the so-called curse last night, proving once again that they are a team to be reckoned with, and winning the coveted World Series will be a not so irregular thing for them.
Boston has had its share of tragedy this year, and with the memory of the Boston Marathon still fresh on everyone's mind, the Sox got down to business early on and kept up the heat the entire season, culminating with last night's trip into the history books at Fenway Park. I have to believe that the 'Babe' was watching with pride as they won in his house last night.
The upcoming parades and celebrations will be just the shot in the arm that city needs to complete healing the wounds inflicted. The Patriots Press offers our congratulations to the Boston Red Sox for another stellar year and World Series Victory.
Fox Sports: AMHERST, MASS. – The Red Sox have now won three World Series in the past decade — but not since the days of Babe Ruth had Boston won a fall classic in its beloved Fenway Park.
The victory sent Boston fans spilling into the streets Wednesday night to celebrate the team's 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6. Amid the cheers and high-fives, the white lights of Boston's Prudential Tower read "GO SOX."
"Words cannot describe how I feel," Red Sox fan Sam D'Arrigo said. "This is what being a Boston fan is all about."
The win capped an emotional season for the Red Sox, one heavy with the reminder of the Boston Marathon bombings in April, which left three people dead and more than 260 wounded. Players wore "Boston Strong" logos on their left sleeves and a giant "B Strong" logo was mowed into Fenway's outfield.
