NESN’s Boston’s Greatest Sports Moment Round 2: Beacon Hill bracket:
(1) Orr’s goal vs. (9) Horton’s GWG Tampa: Well, since Horton’s goal is apparently better than the Sox winning the 2007 World Series, it must be just as good as Bobby Orr winning the Stanley Cup right? Or some people are just fucking idiots.
(5) Curt’s bloody sock vs. (4) Russell’s final title: If I was old enough to have seen Russell’s final title, I’d probably have picked it. But I have absolutely no associations with it, while the bloody sock is one of the most lasting images of my childhood.
(6) Williams at ‘99 ASG vs. (14) Neely nets 50 in 44: As if the climax of the greatest rivalry in basketball history losing to Cam Neely wasn’t enough of a joke, now it might knock off Teddy Ballgame’s final appearance at Fenway Park? Fuck that.
(7) Damon’s slam vs. (2) Fisk waives ball fair: How the fuck am I supposed to choose here. When I was a kid, I’d reenact this Carlton Fisk homer every time I was out in the backyard with a bat and a ball. Then Damon hit that slam and I jizzed everywhere. Ahh I’m just gonna go with the 2004 Sox postseason cause they actually won.
