« Best...Comeback...Ever -- Papi Be Back - Come On Pap - J.D. Has Our Back | Main | Will Josh Beckett grant us another Game 6 ALCS miracle? »

October 17, 2008



What a beautifully written post. Dare I say the best yet.

It is so funny how you really truly can't count the red sox out - EVER!


Hope springs eternal. What a glorious way to start a Friday. I awoke, giddy like a child on Christmas morning, ready to face the day and bask in the glow of a hard-fought victory. Ready to watch them defend that title one more time, bats at the ready, spirits rekindled in the hope of pulling off yet another miracle...

I think I grew six more white hairs in my beard last night...


Shivers. Adrenaline. Admiration. Pride. A definite Rocky moment! Great post. Go Sox!


heroes, not hero's.

My hater "friends" turned out in full force last night to explain to me that Tampa Bay WILL win. But I'm a Red Sox fan. I still believe.

Thanks Marci. That haters always creep out when they think it's safe...too bad, or is it too good.


1 Of the best nights in my life.........was well last night. Amazing game, amazing heroes, amazing team that we call the BOSTON RED SOX!!!! I am so proud to be a part of the Nation!!!

Never give up, never lose faith, always believe.!!!


Nicely written! I made the analogy of the game to the story of Cinderella on my site. When the clock struck midnight, the spell was broken!

What a game! Definitely similar to the 2004 ALCS game 4, but the comeback started sooner. It had to though with a 7 run defecit!


All of those Red Sox "fans" who left Fenway after the Rays scored their seventh run deserved to wake up this morning and find out that they missed witnessing one of the greatest comebacks in Red Sox and baseball history! It's those golden moments that make the Red Sox such a magical team.


What a game!...What a night!

Hopefully the high wave of momentum will shift our way and crush the Rays at their own park.

Although I will admit (*sigh*), I personally miss Manny and Mikey in the lineup....Yes, I miss that dred-locked fool....

Derek Hixon

There'll always be a part of me that misses Manny, but to his fault, he screwed it up. He's like the partner that cheated on you, it's his fault, and if he wanted, he couldn've been part of all the fun. Iron Mike Lowell on the other hand, I MISS that guy for sure. He's the polar opposite of Manny when it comes to being a professional ballplayer with class.


Even in a podunk bar in North Carolina, the entire joint had caught Red Sox fever. The place actually stayed open long after last call to witness the end of the game. Just superb!

BTW, love the Rockie comparison. Let's go Sox!


Kotsay went to the same high school as me. I remember him coming back to talk to us about the game. It was fun to see him win this game. It was also fun remembering my tattoo artist who kicked his ass back in the day over some girl.

2005 BDD Playoff Push Party

  • Bar & TV's and Boston Dirt Dogs had a playoff push party at Game On! in Fenway Park on September 19. The game didn't go so well as the Sox lost, however, a lot of people had a good time hanging out while getting to "meet" the trophy!

2004 World Series: Game One

  • Mounted Police
    My brother Chris flew into Boston from Chicago to help me root on and pull for the Sox in the Series. We went right from Logan Airport to the Park and ended up watching the game across the street from Fenway at Bills Bar on Landsdown Street. We looked into scalping tickets but standing room only were going for $1,200 and up!This was a great and memorable day to be able to be with my brother in Boston to see the Red Sox in the World Series. This is a snap shot of two weeks of my life that provided a lot of sorrow, joy, sleep deprivation, and hangovers. Two of the best weeks of my life...
