Ho hum, another World Series, Game Six. Red Sox-Cardinals. Beards. The Right Way. Most expensive tickets ever. First Red Sox World Series win in Boston since 1918. Cardinals trapped on an airplane for seven hours.

As a Phillies fan, it can be tough to get into this. The Sixers' season begins tonight, after all.

Of course, he could hit a game-winning home run and become better known as one of the Red Sox than as a Phillie. They could retire his number. He could go into the Hall of Fame with them, if the threshold for getting into the Hall of Fame lowers dramatically.

Nobody watch.
