Baby Giraffe in Boston Zoo Named In Honor of World Series Champ Red Sox

GIRAFFE BORN IN BOSTON ZOO NAMED AFTER WS CHAMPS: What better way to cap off a championship season than to have a baby giraffe named after you:

Giraffe Boston Sox

(Which way to Toys-R-Us?)

WBZ-TV reports Boston’s Franklin Park Zoo named the long-neck newborn “Sox”, in honor of the baseball team’s World Series sweep.Although the giraffe was born after Game 1, zoo officials decided to hold off on naming the babe until after the Series, fearing it would be a jinx on the club’s chances.

After enduring 86 years of the Curse of the Bambino, we’re sure David Ortiz & crew could have held off any giraffe jinx.

Goat Bill Buckner

Now that the Red Sox have claimed two MLB titles in the past four years, maybe the zoo can stop naming their goats Bill Buckner and their jackasses Bucky Dent.
