Big mouth Indians first baseman Ryan Garko made one of the most boneheaded statements of the postseason after Cleveland lost Game 5 at home and had to try to win the pennant in Boston. He said: "The champagne tastes just as good on the road as it does at home."
The Red Sox used that as bulletin board material, and actually put that up on the back of their clubhouse door at Fenway. So, how are you enjoying the bubbly now, Ryan?
MLB also jumped the gun by offering Indians fans the paraphernalia you see in the picture that's shown. This was up on MLB's web site shortly after Cleveland won Game 4. I guess they were so sure the Red Sox couldn't come back in this series and that Cleveland had the series all wrapped up.
I guess it also serves those Indians fans for waving those towels that said, "World Series 2007" on them as well. They sure were tempting fate with that, as well as those knuckleheaded Indian fans who held up signs that said, "The Curse Is Back" directed at the Red Sox after the Indians won Game 4. This coming from fans whose team hasn't won a World Series since 1948.
Payback's a bitch, guys.
