While there are a few positives to grasp for you as a Boston fan... I still have to say from a completely unbiased perspective... I doubt the Rays will crumble and allow you to get the wildcard... and there's a better chance of Jesus reincarnate throwing the first pitch of the World Series this year then the Sox winning the division. I mean sure... it COULD happen, but it wont. Especially not when the stuff like the Yankees scoring 5 in the 8th to beat the Rangers, and Papelbon blowing last nights game happen. It sems things like that have been happening at a rate this season that simply cant be seen as coincidental... or chance.
Catching the Rays is certainly, as you said what your primary objective should be... but I do feel the task will be daunting. Sure the Rays have hit a skid... but I thnk they are for real... and the Sox dont match up well with them.

In regards to your point about the rivalry... well let me tell you HOW RIGHT you are... this is the first time ever, for me... that I was not fixated to the screen. I was on the internet... I flipped to different channels on occasion. I simply was not drawn in this time. I think their are dual reasons for this. One... I simply dont fear the Sox anymore(Not trying to rub anything in... just sayin) and Two: As you said... it's just WAY overkill. Ranch Doritos all the way. The 70's? Rivalry was HUGE. 80's not so much. Late 90's slightly... 2000's of course... I predict for at least 4 or 5 years these games simply wont have near as much punch... unless its down the stretch and we are very close in the standings.
If it wasnt for Girardi... we would have taken 3 out of 4... but unfortunately we have a nitwit as a manager... leaving Posada in to run etc. The Yankees always have to make things a bit more exciting. They can never just crush the opponents soul like they used to.

Anyway... I miss the days of brawls... and hatred. I miss cursing at my screen when I saw Manny... up. The only guys I really really hate on the Sox is Beckett. I think he's a class A) Jerk. He should do more winning against the Yankees and less flapping his big mouth against the Indians etc. Youk I dont like either... but its more from an annoyance perspective. Beckett I just hate.

Not sur why I chose to write so much, as it prob isnt interesting to you. But its late and I just rambled. Chock full of typos... surely.

Oh and PS. Can we make a friendly deal right now? If the Sox drop more than 7 back int he Wild Card chase... I want a "White Hot - PLASMA" Terror level. That's right.. I want it to skip right over severe red... Can we please make this happen? Only if it goes past 7 games. You'd make all my dreams come true in one fell swoop.

    This was the first time I've been to a game with my Dad since the early 90's and it was just awesome, especially with everything that happened with my Mom a few weeks ago. I know she was watching the game with us and had to have been happy to see us happy.

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...
