Overview

This poetic description of Boston’s 2004 Baseball World Championship recounts, with clever wit and wordplay, the great moments of action and mythological greatness achieved during that historic and exciting season.

The Ballad of the Beantowne Bosox, 2004!

Listen my children and you shall hear
Of a Team and a Towne and a Heck of a Year!
’Twas the 16th of April, Two Thousand Four
When the Bosox of Beantowne kicked off some Lore.


Thus begins the most Magical Story in the History of Sport. On these pages, Championship Teamwork and Athleticism meet the nimble wit of a True Poetic Artisan. Greatness Achieved in Mythological Measure in Game Four, when Roberts steals second! Then
Those Puckish gods of Baseball Fate
Lounging in fields of clover,
Were inventing the Curse of the Berra:
"It ain’t over till it’s over!"


Great Pitching! Stuff Shakespeare would have written if he’d had a T.V.:

As the games thus evened at three apiece,
As to a seventh the Sox fought toward,
They proved their Pen was Mightier
Than the Yanks, who through three had soared!


Relive this Odyssey of Homers! Revel again, through 295 verses of playful wordsmithery by a true Baseball Virtuoso, the play-by-play that brought Victory’s Sweet Cup of Immortality to Boston!

With Manny on, Ortiz makes Brown’s first pitch
Do a noise like "Kablooie!"
And sing as it clears the right-field wall,
"Meet me in St. Louie!"

Destined to be a true classic, the clever wordplay on these pages is literature, history, sports entertainment and humor, all rolled into the Shared Memories of Greatness Achieved in Boston’s Championship Year!
