Soak In It. ... At Last! ... "Generations of Sox fans went to their graves having never experienced a World Series championship but after an 86-year wait, the descendants of the unfulfilled exulted for family lines."...

John Henry: "Someone said this is the biggest thing to happen in New England since the Revolution. I don't know about that but I know there is an overwhelming sense of joy and relief."

Jackie MacMullan, Globe: "In a matter of 11 days, they turned the baseball world upside down. ... The 2004 version of New England's most valued treasure, a happy bunch of idiots with flowing manes and sturdy bats, refused to buy into the myths that had burdened their predecessors. ... Go ahead. Say it. The Boston Red Sox have won the World Series."

1903, 1912, 1915, 1916, 1918, 2004 ...
