notes on government, sports and popular culture
Ok, so what do we want, 1967 all over again
, or Clemens' return to Fenway in yet another enemy uniform?
Note the similarities to the 1967 Series should the Cardinals prevail: In '67, the Cardinals ran over the opposition (though Houston has given them a fight in the NLCS), while Boston pulled off the "impossible dream" by winning the pennant after finishing ninth in '66.
With Clemens pitching Game 7 for the Astros tonight, his first Series appearance would likely be in Houston. But the rotation would set up a possible Game 6 or 7 start at Fenway.
Tough call. Everybody just wants a good Series, and there's no reason to believe it won't be. Rest up on Friday, baseball fans.
