Idiots Revisited: Catching Up with the Red Sox Who Won the 2004 World Series

Idiots Revisited: Catching Up with the Red Sox Who Won the 2004 World Series by Ian Browne

For 86 years, the Red Sox labored under the Curse of the Bambino, never winning a World Series until a group of self-proclaimed “Idiots” banished the curse in 2004.
