Take me out to the ballgame

After a long couple of months this Red Sox fan eagerly awaits tomorrow's opening game of the 2007 World Series. To see the BoSox take us this far has been a wild ride, capped off with 7 games on the edge of the seat while they sent the Tribe off to play golf in the off season.

I know that my faith has wavered a bit but my team has made it.

There are times that it just takes quite a bit to overcome decades of disappointment in being a New England sports fan.

For now I am in my glory.

Hoping, Dreaming, Praying

Autumn is a tough time to be a New England sports fan.

After watching the BoSox maintain thier lead through September I gleefully cheered them into the ALCS. Game 1 was a dream and my hopes built higher and higher.

Then came games 2, 3, and 4. The Tribe has proven to be strong this year. But there is still (at least) one more game to be played. One more chance for redemption.

I keep telling myself that they have been able to pull this off before. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

No matter what though, there is a happy ending. The Yankees are already playing Golf while the BoSox are playing ball.
