Before that, the last time they won the World Series was 1918! They called it "The Curse of the Bambino." Babe Ruth was a great player for the Red Sox. The Red Sox gave him to the NY Yankees. Babe told the Red Sox, "You'll never win without me." And the Red Sox didn't win. For a very, very long time.
There were lots of police protecting us!
Here's Manny Ramirez! Big Papi (David Ortiz) was on this Duck too, but he was on the other side, so Guillaume couldn't take a picture. The two older guys are David and Eliot. They own a huge chain of furniture stores. At the beginning of the season, they said if anyone bought furniture on a certain weekend in July, and the Red Sox won the World Series, they would get some of that furniture for FREE!
