I was hoping for Roger Clemens on the mound in Fenway Park but I'll settle for the Cardinals. The other downside for the Cardinals Sox match up is the '67 and '46 Series when the Cardinal beat us in seven both times. Just more fodder for the Curse of the Bambino stories. If you watch the Series I am sure you will be aquanted with the "Pesky Held The Ball!!" in 46. (I think it was 46. I'm a bad Sox Nation citizen because I have not memorized all of the travails prior to my birth.)<br>I sat next to Pesky on a flight to FLA a couple years back and he was the nicest guy. He will I am sure, be interviewed for the Curse stories because it was a Cardinal that crossed the plate when he held the ball. For the record, I hope they show the film clip of it because he did not hold the ball.<br><br>Right now Sox Nation rests and says, "we beat the Yankees in the most humiliating way possible. It will be OK if we don't win the Series." But that is nonsense. Three innings in it will dawn on us, If we do not beat the Cardinals the entire succesful season and the blistering backdoor sweep of the Yankees will turn to ashes in the mouth as we gnash our teeth for a "wait until next year." If we do beat the Cardinals I have no idea what to do. It is virgin territory. One would think the Patriots winning would show us the way but that is not the case for Boston. <br><br>Boston is not a football town. We like the Patriots but the Red Sox is the beginning middle and end of this place. I dug out my Red Sox baseball bat tie from 18 years ago and beautiful women showed their Sox affection by [censored] and [censored] my [censored]<br><br>People are doing the wackiest things. Yesterday I tried to lie my way into the Park so I could see the World Series logo on the Fenway grass. It would have worked too if it had been there. "I was sent down by the Jimmy Fund web site for pictures of the logo". "Uh, buddy, it ain't painted yet." "Oops." Last night coming home from class listening to the NL game I detoured to the Park again and idled in front of the ticket office as the Cards clinched. The official start. I gotta get a grip. <br><br>You can enjoy the games. We cannot. Every pitch will be agony. When does the Babe show up to dribble the ball through a first baseman's legs? (Ortiz will play first in STL )<br><br>Boston truly is a drinking town with a major league baseball problem. Saturday is round one of martini time. See you on the other side. On Halloween I will either be my same old mad scientist but with a [censored] eating grin or I will join my town in replicating "Night of The Living Dead". I will be the one of many with a wooden stake in my heart.<br><br>Speaking of which, anyone seen DaddyMac?

Congrats to all the Red Sox and all their fans.<br><br>I had the oportunity to catch game seven the other night while I was in Fishkill NY and watched the game in the hotel bar. Considering my close proximity to NYC I expected the bar to be fertile Yankee territory. Much to my surprise other than the bartender Diedra, ALL the other patrons were Sox fans, and most of them were from in or around Boston. Freaky. We had a blast though. <br><br>After JD's grand slam every time I made a move to go back to my room to catch the rest of the game, I would be cajoled back in with another round from my new found Boston friends. They said if I left the karma would be broken and the Sox risked losing. So being the opportunist that I am, I attempted to leave no less than seven times, and each time was rewarded for staying with another pint of "Mother's Milk", (some local brew pubs current offering). What a great bunch of guys. We all got absolutely blotto and I was really happy for them. <br><br>I did pose the question concerning what is more important, beating the Yankees the way they did or winning the World Series?The answer that I got from a gentleman from Worcester was that he was quite content with the ALCS penant, for now. But just for now.<br><br>
I've woken up the next morning a little worse for wear a few times taking one for the team so I could keep their mojo aligned. I snuck three Halloween candy bars in what turned out to be a three run fifth last week to tie the game. So I had to eat three more each inning after that. That game went 14 innings before Ortiz ended my misery.<br>They say I will be off the insulin drip tomorrow before game time.<br><br><br>Pete, Daddymac, P-Diddy, Cashman isn't getting fired. Meetings in Tampa next week. It will get better. And the picture of A-Rod running down the first base line with a purse is an obvious photoshop.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>luciferase is a four nineteener
