One of the most basic human instincts is to Label.  We are Nomothetes in our very DNA. We name the things we encounter, see, hear and witness. Be they beautiful or horrifying, if we experience it, we will name it.  Think I am talking out of my ass? 

Miracle on Ice.

9-11.

The Holocaust.

 

Be they horrible or wonderful, a few simple words sum up an aggregated event and strike a chord in all who know of it.

We here at SSS, the devout, the faithful, the devoted and exalted Sox Fans, have witnessed such an event this season upon the emerald green grass at US Cellular Field over the past 30 or so days.

From 3 games in the lead, with dreams of 93+ wins, to now eliminated and the promise of even .500 ball at risk

 


So- what the fuck do we call it?  

Some conversation starters after Le Jumpe.

The Collapse.

The Minnesota Horror.

The Suckitude.

The Inevitability of Poor Decisions.

Thome's Revenge!
