Red Sox Nation - You're welcome

It took 86 years for the Red Sox to win a World Series. Until 2004, I come along, get pregnant and *Wham*...

World Series Champions.

Three years later, 2007. All of Red Sox Nation barely dared to dream that another title could be ours again so soon. I get pregnant again and *Wham*...

Another World Series Championship.

And did I mention the winners of Super Bowl XXXVIII and XXXIX, in 2004 and 2005, were the New England Patriots? And that the very same Patriots are currently undefeated?

Coincidence???

Probably. But I'm considering putting my uterus up for sale on Ebay once I deliver T.B. Wams, just in case. I'm not going through another pregnancy again and it really would be a shame for our beloved sports teams to go decades without another title.

Celtics and Bruins fans should start considering paying me for the privilege to rub my belly. Rubs start at 25 bucks a pop. Cash only.

yahoo, girl...yahoo.

although the 2004 series coincided with M's birth, so that one was mine, sorry about that.

Hannah said...

OK, that is a hilarious coincidence. And you could probably make some phat cash from your uterus, if it actually guarantees Red Sox Nation the opportunity to build a dynasty.

Now how funny is it that I had this very SAME conversation with my hubby last night at midnight! Both of our sons (Breighton-2.5 and Boy-Type Child To Be Named in 12 weeks) will know first hand what it is like to hear Mommy scream and cheer from inside the uterus.

Oddly, my Mom was the same with me... but she didn't cheer hard enough in 1975!

A special bond with the baby BoSox kids!

Best of luck with the pregnancy. And I am pretty sure naming the baby anything related to the Red Sox is acceptable... at least in my mind!

Just shy away from COCO!

Wow. If I rub your belly, do you think it would give me luck, too? Like maybe moving to a great library branch and getting the job I'd really love and maybe finishing the 3rd floor reno by the end of the year? I'd travel for that kind of luck... (Yes, I just want to caress you once more, dear!)

PunditMom said...

They NEED you, girl!

Mamma said...

Hmmm horrific nausea and the Sox winning the Series?

Coincidence?

I think not.

;)

Mrs. Chicky said...

Mamma - are you trash talkin' about my Sox? That's okay. I enjoy a little trash with my sports. Bring it.

motherbumper said...

Oh I love me some trash talk!

btw - I think the belly rubs would definitely get top dollar from some of the hockey teams up here.

86 years?!

Has baseball really been around that long...?

Since I come from NY, I'll have to refrain from what I really wanna say....


Nah, only kidding...I think it was all YOU and your UTERUS that helped the sox...they couldn't have done it without you!

And I mean that with not a sarcastic tone in my body!

Cakabaker said...

I love it, what a brillant idea! Can the Lions come rub your belly too?

Filtering Life said...

Now that is dedication to your team. As a wife of a native to Boston...I like to think it was me who has the horseshoe up their ass. I married my hubby in 2004 and we are pregnant this year...I don't know, I was thinking it was me all this time, but you got me wondering.

Kizz said...

Thank you. The Red Sox Nation thanks you.

Also, Mike Lowell is gorgeous.

No, that's not pertinent but it's the truth and I can't stop saying it.

Poopydigs said...

Stay right there whilst I buy a Lotto ticket.

I need some belly rubbing for good luck!

Manic Mommy said...

Another knocked up NE Mama during the 2004 season - RC was born 4/28/05 - and his pitching arm is extrordinary! I'm just *considering* another pregnancy and we win again.

Also, I was HUGE into the Bruins during college (the 86/87 season) but on the pill. We did make it to the Stanley Cup but lost to the Oilers.

PS They'll only post your uterus on eBay if it's shaped like the Virgin Mary.

(going to Hell)

SJ said...

Congrats to you and the Red Sox Nation on the World Series win....

Heidi Hyde said...

Hmmm...You're a good luck charm!
Or your uterus is anyway!

Fer chrissake, a girl will throw up for just about any old team these days.

Oh, The Joys said...

I don't know from the sports.

Kyla said...

The Red Sox nation needs your uterus! LOL.

You should have written this like back in APRIL so I could have taken advantage of the Jordan's Furnitures' promo, we could have furnished the whole house for FREE!!
