How The World Has Changed Since The Red Sox Were Last Over .500
It’s been a long time since the Red Sox have been over .500. In reality it’s been since the Red Sox’s season ending lost on September 28th to the Orioles. It’s been even longer since they’ve seen them playing good baseball.
As I write this article, 49 games into the 2012 season, the Red Sox are over .500 for the first time this year. Boy, how the world has changed since the last time the Red Sox were a winning team. Let’s take a trip back down memory lane. *Insert Wayne’s World flash back*
Since the last time the Red Sox were over .500…
Middle and lower classes citizens in MA are no longer the only ones who hate Mitt Romney.
I’ve perfected my pancake making technique.
Terry Francona went from managing the Red Sox to in the booth at ESPN.
Bobby Valentine went from the Booth at ESPN to managing the Red Sox.
People stopped caring about Kony.
I got a Pinterest. I’ve yet to post on it. I’m not even going to link it here.
Facebook bought instagram and the people bought facebook shares (hopefully they didn’t).
Dick Clark did his final ball drop.
Kentucky won March Madness. More importantly I won my bracket. Anthony Davis has hopefully won a trip to the groomer.
“Swag” got replaced by “YOLO”, the obnoxious level has remained constant.
Zooey Deschanel has gone mainstream. But still loved by hipsters.
Have you seen Girls? Not bad.
Amber Heard is clearly the hottest person in the world. That has not been changed. Just look!
Steve Jobs has stopped texting.
Hunger Games is no longer known only as a book read be tweens.
Jennifer Lawrence has not called me. Call me! Maybe?
Try to remember back to almost the year 2011. A year when the Red Sox were over .500. Won 90 games. Just missed the playoffs. Remember we used this thing called Twitter. Posted on a website called Facebook. Used Gmail and Skype. Awaited the arrival of the hoverboard. Actually I’m still waiting for that. Only 3 years away!
