Gee, maybe if the Sox had tried to run up the score a bit more tonight, they might’ve actually won the game. This is exhibit “A” for the argument that you never stop playing and give “mercy” to the other team. A seven run lead in the eighth inning isn’t enough. Buck and Mazz will probably say tomorrow that the Sox lack the “killer instinct”.
Could that Brady/Patriots window, just like the Celtics, be closed for good?
The colossal second-coming of Joe Montana, once a perfect 10-0 and then 14-2 in the postseason, needed a Tim Tebow tumble to reality and a choke for the ages by Baltimore’s Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff — just to pick up a couple playoff wins.
