Red Sox Win #2

The ALC Series is at 3 games to 2 with the Yankees in the lead. Our researchers have predicted the recovery steps the average Yankee fan would go through if the Red Sox actually went on to win:

1) Mass Disbelief
2) More Disbelief
3) Nervous Laughter
4) Denial
5) Anger
6) Fury
7) Rioting
8) Imprisonment

(Note: Our researchers were themselves going through these states as they wrote the study. Suffice to say we will not be doing any reasearch columns for a while.)
