14 January 2005 | by (Massachusets) – See all my reviews

As someone who has suffered with the Red Sox my entire life, I was blown away when they finally did it all. I have seen this video five times and I still get emotional when the video turns to the last game of the series.

That being said, the production is excellent and underscores the Sox-Yankee rivalry that is a century old.

The video begins with the final game of the ALCS against New York in 2003 when Boone homers to send the Yankees to the series.

We get an inside look at what management did in the off season to improve the team, as well as insights from Terry Francona and assorted players as to the key points of the season.

The turning point is the game in July against the Yankees which featured a brawl between Varitek and A-Rod. At this point, the team gels and goes on its August tear. Reviews of the ALDS and the ALCS follow. The film wraps up with a review of the WS.

Better is the poignancy with recollections from Johnny Pesky and a score that is complimentary rather than turning the film into an hour plus music video.

Excellent narration and perfect insertion of observations by sports announcers Joe Buck, Jerry Trubiano, Joe Castiglione and others make this well worth the money for any Red Sox fan, or baseball fan in general.
