A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What are your thoughts on the Red Sox comeback and its implications?"
"I think they'll be short-lived. I think that there will be another great Red Sox-Yankee series in the playoffs next year and this one will be mostly forgotten. I think I'm in the minority in that opinion."
Tom Quinn, Jefferson Road
"Well I didn't think they were going to come back, first of all. Coming back from a 3-0 deficit has never been done in baseball, basketball and once or twice in hockey so that's pretty amazing. I don't know what the implications of that would be. It basically just means that the Red Sox will be really hot going into the World Series. Winning a lot of games in a row carries that emotion into the next games."
Nikolas Ajagu, Prospect Street
"I was rooting for the Yankees but I'm thrilled that the Red Sox were able to get the opportunity to go to the World Series. I hope it reflects well on John Kerry who also is from Massachusetts."
Abram Gabriel, Terhune Road
"I've no idea what the implications are. I've heard that the Curse of the Bambino is really just a joke and shouldn't be taken seriously but I get everything by hearsay. I guess it's really exciting that they won. I lived in Manhattan for years so I have to root for the Yankees."
Patricia Donahue, Wiggins Street
"In many ways I'm hoping that the Red Sox win the World Series so we can finally stop hearing about the Curse. As far as the comeback is concerned it was a great feat. They proved that they were the better team this year. It's very difficult to admit that."
Owen O'Donnell, Snowden Lane
