Game over, series over, and the Red Sox are World Champs again!

Champs Again

They’ve done it! They’ve done it!  With a final score of 4-3, the Red Sox complete a four-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies and take their second World Series in four years.  You’ve gotta love it.  The best part was jumping up and down in my Colorado call center as everyone else was wallowing in disappointment; the kind of disappointment that can only be had by seeing your team win a million games in a row, and then losing the four that counted the most–with the most on the line.

But oh well.  Today rightly went to the Red Sox.  They pitched better, hit better, ran the bases better, and made play after play to get there.  It’s a good day to be a member of Red Sox Nation.  I probably won’t have serious writeup on the game or series for that matter.  I was at work for almost all the games, and by the time I watch them online, other people have already done a good job at that.  I will, however, stay tuned in to our off-season moves.  What will happen to Coco Crisp?  What do we do with Jacoby Ellsbury?  What will happen with Mike Lowell, Curt Schilling?  Julio Lugo? A-Rod just announced his entry to the free agent market.  Little as I can stand him as a Yankee, I wouldn’t mind him playing the 6-position, or even 3rd base if we don’t keep Lowell. 

But all that is for another day.  Today and tomorrow are for playing Red Sox anthems and loving life.  I know I will.  Enjoy this and this.

Go Sox!

This video will change your life… all you need to know:  Miracle.

And from the Sox game… Royce Clayton on Taco Bell’s Steal a Base, Steal a Taco Promotion. (The first link aired during game one, when Coco Crisp explained the promo, and the second is also from game one, but aired during game two after Jacoby Ellsbury won us all a free taco). Royce and CocoRoyce and Jacoby.

 …And speaking of Jacoby, I can’t wait to see A LOT more of him as he emerges as our star center fielder.  Rookie of the Year next year!
