1 Week Later: Have You Come Down Yet?

Are you enjoying the omnipresent 2004 Officially Licensed World Series souvenirs, the cover of Time and Sports Illustrated, and scattered store and business signage congratulating the World Champion Boston Red Sox (nice ring to that phrase, isn't there?)
Have you settled down yet?
Does it seem real to you yet?
The No. 1 poll on our site indicates that as much as people are enjoying this - they can't wait for next year to do it again. Now we know why Yankees fans are the way they are (in part, anyway).
Well, for me one week later, it still feels pretty damn good, thank you for asking.
And like Manny, I can't wait to raise the flag and observe the distribution of the rings in full view of Jeter, A-Rod, et. al. What a delicious moment - worth enduring a long cold winter for.

A Suggestion to the Nation: We should start a collection among the Red Sox Nation, a nickel here, a dime there. It adds up.
What for? i suggest we use the money to rent a luxury box at Fenway for Opening Day, and invite Georgie Porgie and his staff up for the game as the free guest of RSN to see the championship flag hoisted and the WS rings given out.
