Suck it, Spike

Spike Lee, who has always been outspoken about his hatred of the Red Sox apparently couldn't handle last night's defeat very well. For all the smack he has talked in the past, he didn't have much to say after the game, except for the fact that he hopes the Sox lose the World Series. He has actually said before that he prays the Sox NEVER win a series while he's alive. Let's prove him wrong.

He was not the only celebrity at the game last night who went home unhappy:

He said ``It ain't over 'til it's over,'' but even Yogi Berra knew it was over for the New York Yankees last night when he fled the House that Ruth Built in the eighth inning when the Bronx Bombers were on their way to a shocking 10-3 shellacking by the Boston Red Sox.

     Yogi, along with other Yankees die-hards, appeared dazed in disbelief to have witnessed the whoopin' that knocked
Joe Torre's team out of yet another World Series appearance.

     Crazy-coiffed corporate titan
Donald Trump, who watched the action from owner George Steinbrenner's luxury box, bailed shortly after Berra.

Spike Lee, who before the game predicted the Sox fans would be ``cryin' in their beer'' in Boston, exited the park only shaking his head.

Funny how they couldn't stick it out in the end, despite how much they claim to be fans. I was at the 19-8 loss, and I can say that even after being humiliated in our own ballpark, plenty of fans stayed through the end of the game. After all, we figured it was the last time we'd see our team in person until next year. Apparently those guys just didn't have the stomach for it.
