Red Sox - Yankees... Lennon - McCartney... sometimes the hype is justified
In a strange way, I guess it is appropriate that American Idol is doing Lennon and McCartney songs at the same time the Red Sox and Yankees are playing.
You can try and be cool and say that the Beatles are overhyped... but then when you think about the total tonnage of great Lennon and McCartney songs that exist, you realize that maybe the hype is justified.
American Idol did a whole night of their songs... and they barely scratched Sgt. Pepper and Rubber Soul.
And lo and behold, the Sox and Yankees get everyone who isn't a Red Sox or Yankees fan mad about the hype. But look at what we got! Three games, all with late lead changes, all up in the air until the end.
Sorry rest of the baseball world, our rivalry is just better.
Now Red Sox... get your act together... and DON'T LET ME DOWN!
