Red Sox Nation is getting fired up for the World Series. The showdown between the Red Sox and Cardinals kicks off Wednesday night. Red Sox are playing host to the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals. This marks the fourth time these teams have met in a World Series. The Cards won the first two encounters before the Sox won the pennant in 2004.
Fans at Buffalo Wild Wings in Burlington were ready for the action. They told us what they'll need to see for the Sox to win and why they love the team.
"I think Wainwright is going to have to stop doing so many fastballs. They need to go a little slower for his pitches to have an unexpected move up his sleeve," said Timothy Tullgren, a Red Sox fan.
"I love them because they are very good at each game and I love them because my dad has a Red Sox shirt and he wears it almost each day," said Kelsey Tullgren, a Red Sox fan.
"I grew up and my family liked the Red Sox. I have lots of aunts and uncles and they are all Red Sox fans," said Victoria Crowley, a Red Sox fan.
Traditionally we have seen mayors in competing cities wager on big games. This year, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Boston, Cardinal Sean O'Malley, has a bet going with the Archbishop of St. Louis. The archbishop from the losing city will have to make a $100 donation to the other's charity.
