The 5 Year Rule. . . (or, No Bitching Until '09!)!

With the Red Sox floundering a bit this summer, and the Yankees closing in a bit (only five games back to start the day), here is a post to remind myself of the five year rule:

"After your team wins a championship, they immediately get a five-year grace period: You can't complain about anything that happens with your team (trades, draft picks, salary-cap cuts, coaching moves) for five years. There are no exceptions. For instance, the Sox could finish 0-825 over the next five years and I wouldn't say a peep. That's just the way it is. You win the World Series, you go on cruise control for five years. Everything else is gravy."
--Bill Simmons (The Sports Guy) in November 2004.

I guess I still got two years to go, so it's all good. . . Uh-huh, thats right . . . . . . . . . . No Worries At all!
