The Cave of Caerbonnog

This World Series reminds me a bit of a scene near the end of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". On his quest for the Holy Grail, King Arthur must cross through the cave of Caerbonnog. He is warned that it is guarded "by a creature so foul, so cruel that no man yet has fought it and lived." When they reach the cave, he is relieved to find out that this supposedly foul creature is a little rabbit.

The Red Sox play the part of King Arthur and his knights. The Rockies (and their 21 wins in 22 games against some of the best teams in the NL) play the part of the rabbit. For the purpose of the analogy, I am asking you to forget the fact that the Rabbit of Caerbonnog was actually bad-ass. I guess that makes my comparison pretty shitty. Deal with it, dickweeds!
