2008 was a great run, but 2009, in my opinion, was an even funner ride.  We saw what this team could do (win the whole fuckin’ thing), and they only got better (adding such characters as Pedro fucking Martinez, Rauuuuuul Ibanez, and Chan Ho Park) on their way to their second straight pennant.  Perhaps it might not have been as fun without the reining WFC over our heads, but it seemed that 2009 was wire-to-wire ecstasy.  We lost in the World Series, but somehow it seemed OK.  I mean, the Yankees are stupid, but they absolutely outplayed us while we played our best, and we were the first team to make back-to-back World Serieseses since those Yankees in 2000 and 2001.  The end was disappointing, but it all seemed OK.  We were in a magical place, and everyone could feel it.
