Red Sox Ascend Olympus

Former Commissioner of Major League Baseball (not to mention former President of Yale University) Bart Giamatti paid tribute to Fenway Park as follows:
As I grew up, I knew that as a building [Fenway Park] was on the level of Mount Olympus, the Pyramid at Giza, the nation's capitol, the czar's Winter Palace, and the Louvre — except, of course, that is better than all those inconsequential places.

By winning the World Series on October 30, 2013 - the team's third World Series championship in a decade - the Boston Red Sox have lived up to Giamatti's Olympian tribute.  What a great time to be a Red Sox fan!
