So did y’all like that World Series game last night? Actually let me correct myself. How did you like half inning of a game? I mean after the first three outs, the rest of the game was quite the bore.

The Sox whooped up on the Rox 13-1 last night jumping out to a quick three-run lead in the first inning thanks to pedophile magnet Dustin Pedroia’s lead off homer in the first inning off of Jeff Francis. More amazing than that homer is the fact that he is able to grow a little bit of chin dust. And look at him coming home to Big Papi.

Anyhow, after that first inning the only compelling part was listening to Joe Buck and the jub-jub.

For those of you who don't know, Joe-Joe was on the Conan O'Brien show last week when Conan made a bet with Joe-Joe. Conan would give $1,000 to the charity of Joe-Joe's choice if he works the word "jub-jub" into the broadcast.

We only had to wait until the bottom of the third inning for him to work the "jub-jub".

After that, well there really was nothing else to watch. I didn't even see Eric Gagne pitch one inning of shutout ball, something he hasn't done in a long while. I was surprised seeing as how he had been putting the "gag" in Gagne recently.

Anyhow sure the Rox got plastered last night facing Josh Beckett, but did anyone really expect them to win that game? I see them coming back in Game 2 against Curt Schilling, MLB's version of Ann Coulter.

It's not secret who I'm rooting for, but I can only hope the rest of this World Series isn't as droll and boring as last night's game.
