It was their third World Series title in the last ten years, but it turns out to be the first the Boston Red Sox have won at home--Fenway Park--in 95 years. Who did they beat at Fenway then? It was, of course, the hapless, helpless, hopeless Chicago Cubs.
"Lovable losers," Chicagoans sometimes call them, but I've always had trouble with that even though they are my team. They last won the Series in 1908, more than a century ago. I think they're shooting for two.
