1986 World Series

1986, Mets vs Red Sox. Of course the infamous game 6 and Bill Buckner being the only thing people remember. The Red Sox blew a two run lead in the bottom of the ninth with 2 outs and no one on base. Three singles, a wild pitch and an error later, the Mets win and take game seven. This showed how elusive the world series really is. It can make and break careers, and shoot a surge of pain and joy in the hearts of millions of people all around the world. Sure, I was four during this world series, but the stories and stigma surrounding this series intrigues me greatly. I've watched game 6 on ESPM classic 3 years ago and ever since, I've thought about this game and this series at least a couple times a week.

Anyone else have thoughts or even memories on this series? Was it more of a triumph for the Mets or a horrible failure for the Red Sox? Is it the greatest world series ever?
