Kerry's Top 10 Sox messages during tonight's debate
It's as inevitable as death and taxes. You just know John Kerry is going to slip in some mention of the Red Sox during tonight's presidential debate against President Bush. If you were his advisor, what are the top 10 messages you'd give him to send to Red Sox Nation (We're guessing "call Bush my daddy" is out of the question). Hey, anything's better than "Manny Ortez."
George, looks like you and the Yankees won.
With stem-cell research not only could I reverse the Babe Ruth curse, I could have him back in a Red Sox uniform before game 3. After all, I have a plan.
Yankees suck! Bush too.
IKerry: I should be at the game at Fanway wathcing the Red Sox and Diamondbacks tonight, but I'm here in Phoenix.

Question: You're a Sox fan, right? "I actually wanted the Red Sox to win last night before I rooted for the Yankees." Question: Was the playoff series between the Sox and Yankees worth it? "It depends on the outcome." Question: What about a tax increase" "I'll only raise taxes on ballclubs with payrolls over $190 million" Question: How would you address the intelligence gap? "We were lead into war with the Yankees based on faulty intelligence. Namely, we thought Francona had intelligence. We now know that to be false."

1) Vote for me, so at least one New England institution might win this fall. 2) A loser in October and a loser in November 3)If I am president I will find a way to move the Yankees to Boston. 4) If I am president ,you will finally get a new ballpark. 5) If I am president, I will legislate losing as a good thing. 6) WE SUCK

The Red Sox should take heart in their great tradition and their greatest players, Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle and Manny Ortez.

Here's a few: 4. I know something about coming from behind to win, and so do the Red Sox. 3. Manny Ramirez shouldn't be shy about speaking English. He does it better than George. 2. Does anyone really still believe in Bush's claims about WMD or Giambi's claims about BALCO? Seriously? 1. The Yankees aren't the only Evil Empire that needs defeating in this country.
Francona has misled us! He masquerades as a Red Sox but he's really a Cub!

The only way for Boston to break "The curse of the Bambino" is for the fans to reverse their approach to the game. First identify the problem...and realize it's not the team that's the problem it's the fans. Then understand the curse or curses... There's really 2 curses working here but both are intertwined. The first is that the Bambino was traded, period. The second that he was traded to the Yankee's. As long as the Yankee's are around the Red Sox will not win the World Series until they get past them first. Then as we all know...They must quell the wrath of the Babe. Now...The Bambimo's curse stiffen's as the Red Sox fans hatred intensifies towards the Yankee's. So...They must turn this projected antagonism around in their favor in order to defeat the curse and the Yankee's. The solution to end the Bambino's curse.... The Boston fan must make the supreme sacrifice defeat this nightmare....Show their love for the Yankee's... Yes....They must root for the Yankee's at Fenway.... Yes I'm saying all of Boston must root for the Yankee's in Boston and I mean "hoot and hollar" every time a Yankee gets up to bat or does something outstanding in the field. The New York team will be so flustered by this happening that they will lose their poise and intensity and lose the game big time and after that....the curse will be forever broken. Then Boston must win... and only they will....and the curse be broken forever.
