The Boston Red Sox won the World Series last night for the first time in 86 years. Congratulations to them and their fans who prove that New Englanders actually have unruly monsters inside them that need to be subdued by lots of pepper spray. Now, whenever the Red Sox lose, they can no longer blame the Babe but just themselves. To their credit, they won eight games in a row, coming from a 0-3 series deficit during the ALCS against the Yankees and sweeping the Cardinals during the World Series. Gothamist will go back to finding baseball kinda boring (the season is just too long!) and wait for the Boss to make some ridiculously overpriced deal. Oh, and did anyone feel disgusted when seeing Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore run onto the field for a scene in their now-filming movie that's the baseball version of Nick Hornby's Fever Pitch?
And in the NYC related part of this story, a Staten Island couple married in Massachusetts were harassed and heckled by a drunken busboy with chants of "Yankees suck!" and threats to beat up the NYC guests. The busboy even banged on the hotel room door of a relative, scaring the relative to take refufe with the newlyweds on their honeymoon night. The groom professes confusion, because the Red Sox had beat the Yankees nights earlier and the groom wasn't even a baseball fan, and is looking for damages. The hotel denies that the incident occured. Gothamist takes this as a cautionary tale of what happens when you're not married by witches in Salem, Massachusetts.
