Red Sox v. Yankees in Court

As I write this, it’s about 100 degrees outside and I’m sitting in my basement watching the Red Sox.

I’m thinking about what to write for this week so I decided to search Connecticut case law for any Red Sox references.

My search results yielded a total of six mentions of the “Red Sox.”

I came across this line from Judge Pickard that is sure to make Connecticut Employment Law Blog’s Daniel Schwartz (a great blogger but unfortunately a Yankee fan) happy:

From 1918 until last season the Yankees and Red Sox teams were said to have been “competitive with” each other (“the greatest rivalry in sports”) even though the Yankees had won 26 World Series titles and the Red Sox none. Barber v. Skip Barber Racing School, LLC, 2005 WL 3509774 * 9 (2005).

A jab at the Red Sox from the judiciary? I’ll let you be the judge.

All I know is that I won’t be referencing David Ortiz in my next brief to Judge Pickard.

In the meantime, I’ll take solace that as I write this, the Red Sox are in first place. The Red Sox are defending World Series Champions and have won 2 World Series titles in 4 seasons.

Oh and I forgot to mention that the Yankees are in last place in the AL East.  The Yankees have not one a World Series Championship this century or for that matter, this millennium.  And the Yankees are the only team in baseball history to lose a seven game playoff series after being up 3 games to none.
