Their win yesterday is bittersweet since my mom passed away in 2003 and never got to see the Red Sox win the World Series (She was a big Patriots fan too but did get to see them win one Superbowl). Along with missing the Red Sox wins, as I've written here before, my mom also wasn't here to witness me getting legally married. However, like last night's win, I could feel my mother right next to me, excited as can be and taking the happiness all in.
Which leads me to one of the reasons I think the Red Sox won. Of course they're a great team and yes, they did play beautifully, but I think there was a higher power in play.
In the infamous words of Brian Camenker:
I could sit here and I could probably, you know, find some ways of connecting the dots to gay marriage to all of these if I had enough time and if I did some research.
You see, Colorado is the home of Focus on the Family, one of the eminent anti-gay organizations in the country (possibly the world?) They tried to eradicate same sex marriage in every state in this country and failed in Massachusetts.When the Massachusetts Legislature prevented discrimination from staining the country's oldest constitution it seems only fitting that the Red Sox would be World champs over the Colorado Rockies.
So maybe Brian Camenker is a little bit right this time
