Ok, now i believe there is a "NWO" type plot in place, but this thread takes it way too far in my opinion. Let this Boston native give you a little
New England sports history.
The Patriots got good because Tom Brady is a better quarterback than Drew Bledsoe. After Bledsoe got hurt early in the 2001 season, they were forced
to use Brady (the back-up QB). Turns out, Brady did better than Bledsoe, so Brady became the starting QB. That's why the Patriots have won 2
Superbowls, and are appearing in another one. No NWO plot, no Illuminati fix.
The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees have been the greatest rivals in pro-sports history since the Red Sox traded Babe Ruth to the Yankees in
1920. "The Curse of the Bambino" is the notion that since that trade, the Red Sox have been cursed by never winning a World Series, often losing in
heart-breaking ways (look up Bucky Dent, whose middle name cannot be said here
and Bill Buckner). Now before a team can go to the World Series,
they must play in the playoffs, first series is 5 games, second series is 7 games. Oftentimes, the Yankees and the Red Sox would face each other at
one point or another in these playoffs. Sad to say for Red Sox Nation, the Yankees usually won. Except in 2004, when the Sox were down 3 games to
none against the Yankees, and won four in a row to go on to the World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Boston swept, and became the World
Series Champions for the first time since 1918. Some would say this was because of fate, because of the red moon, because of the song "Tessie," or
any number of other things. I'd like to think it was because of Terry Francona, Boston's new head coach, a clubhouse that was on the same page, and
a little determination combined with some really good hitting and even better pitching. Again, no NWO, no Illuminati.
Next point, if the NWO plot was to fix the outcomes of sports games in order to further their agenda, why didn't the New York Yankees win the World
Series in October of 2001? After 9/11, that would have been the greatest win for the Yankees ever, and would have been an emotional victory for the
people of New York. Instead, the Arizona Diamondbacks won.
The Eagles are in the Superbowl because they played a better game than the Falcons. The Patriots are in the Superbowl because they know how to win,
and they were playing against a rookie QB who hasn't gotten his post-season legs yet. The playoffs came down to the Boston Red Sox and the New York
Yankees because that's how it has been for a while, with both teams usually taking the #1 and #2 spots in the American League.
Now I don't doubt that the Illuminati loves the fact that sports have consumed our culture, and in some cases, our lives as much as they have, but I
honestly think some of you are looking too hard for a conspiracy here.
