One Last Victory for Red Sox Nation

With both teams defeated in the recent Division Series, one writer suggests that the Red Sox-Yankee rivalry is now irrelevant.
This glorious insanity between the Yankees and Red Sox has been tremendous fun. Blow the budget. Mortgage the future. We couldn't take our eyes off them -- until now. It's time to move on. But, what an understatement, thanks for the memories. [Link]
Boswell may be right that the best days of the rivalry are now in the past, but what he fails to mention is that . . . the Red Sox won. For all time, they will be the Insane Rivalry Champions. Go Sox!

or he may be all wet.

look--yankees (red) sox will remain among the very most storied and vibrant rivalries in all of professional sports.

no argument from me that how things went down this year is disappointing from the standpoint of ny vs bos; and no argument from me that it could be god-only-knows how long before we see anything approaching last year's events.

but to suggest because of a ho-hum, early exit for both teams that the interest and intrigue intrinsic to the yankee-sox feud is now gone for good?

that dog don't hunt.

That dog certainly won't hunt in New England. There's no better way to spend an autumn afternoon than cursing the memory of Bucky Dent. And there's no telling what twists will happen next.

Whether the rivalry will continue to engage the rest of the country remains an open question, though I can't imagine anything better than pinstripes playing at Fenway in October.
