1918 again? Really?

I'm not thinking about 1918 in 2013.
Ever since Daniel Nava caught that line drive off Matt Holliday's bat to send Boston back home up 3-2, all I've been hearing about is how the Red Sox will have a chance to win a World Series at Fenway Park for the first time since 1918.  I think that's stupid.  We had 1918 on our minds for decades, but those thoughts were buried forever nine years ago.  Who cares if they win a championship at home or not?  Nobody on earth would tell you that the 2004 or 2007 titles would've been better if instead of sweeping the Sox had lost two games on the road and clinched in Boston.

When the Celtics won it all in 2008 I was in the building, and that was awesome.  But with the exception of the 18,500 or so people at that game, does anybody really care where it was?  I don't think many Bruins fans are too upset about winning Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final in Vancouver back in 2011.  And how many Super Bowls have the Patriots won here in New England?  That Adam Vinatieri kick to beat the Rams in 2001 was still worth watching even though it happened all the way down in New Orleans.

So how about instead of this "chance to win a World Series at home for the first time in 95 years" crap everybody just starts talking about the possibility of a 3rd championship in less than a decade; dynasty.
