The Red Sox win the world series

After 86 years drought, the Red Sox finally won the world series against their arch-rivals, the New York Yankees.

One fun part about this rivalry was the story of Pedro Martinez.

Hired by the Boston Red Sox, Pedro was one of the best pitchers in the league. But he consistently performed miserably against the New York Yankees.

One day in frustration he said "I just tip my cap and call the Yankees my daddy."

This statement would come to haunt him as Yankees fans would chant "Who's your DADDY?" at every game he'd play.

They would also hold up signs like this one.

But after the Red Sox won you would see signs all over Boston saying

  "Hey YANKEES! Who's your DADDY NOW?"

After the Red Sox won, people took to the streets. Me and my friend Pedze, joined the celebration. We're holding up a "Who's your DADDY NOW?" T-Shirt.
