What Curse?7 Nov, 2007 By: John Latchem
2007 World Series: Colorado Rockies vs. Boston Red Sox
With its second World Series title in four years, the Boston Red Sox obliterated any trace of the famed Curse of the Bambino. Shout! Factory will commemorate Boston's recent run to Major League Baseball's ultimate prize with the Nov. 27 release of the official 2007 World Series: Colorado Rockies vs. Boston Red Sox DVD.
The $19.99 volume chronicles Boston's four-game sweep of Colorado.
The Rockies were somewhat of a Cinderella story after coming out of nowhere in mid-September to not only qualify for the playoffs, but also dominate their National League opponents.
The 2007 World Series DVD includes narration from actor Matt Damon, a noted member of the “Red Sox Nation,” plus hours of bonus footage, exclusive interviews and candid moments with the players and coaches.
The DVD also contains footage from the 2007 American League Championship Series, in which the Red Sox came back to defeat the Cleveland Indians in seven games.
This is Boston's second championship since 2004, after not winning a World Series since Babe Ruth led the franchise to the 1918 title.
