Cindy did...I didn't...I just got home from Fenway....down 7-0 with 7 outs to go and WE WON!

Now...do I wake her up and tell her, or do I just go to bed...not say a thing....make believe they lost and let her see it on the news.

Decisions...decisions....decisions....

OMGOSH they won.
Paul and i turned off the game and went to bed. We both laid there for well over an hour reading. When we said goodnight to each other we both laughed and said "there's always next year".
WOW what a comeback.

It was a combination of things:

1. Sox started hitting

2. Rays pitchers were spooked by crowd....loudest I've heard ever....and I would guess that I've seen some 400 games at Fenway since 1960. They were aiming the ball

3. Rays felt the spotlight. Upton muffed a fly, Longoria short armed a throw (another word for choking), Gross spiked a throw and totally mis-judged Drew's game winning hit

One of the greatest things about baseball is that, unlike other sports, there is no clock...you can't win by running time off the clock. You have to earn every out. Rays may still win it all....but, they're going to be haunted by this game.

How times have changed.

Last night's winning hit came at 12:16 am 10/17/08.

Aaron Boone's HR in 2003? 10/17/03 at 12:16 am.

What a difference 5 years makes!

Dannyo, I gotta tell ya, there's something about sitting in a recliner with warm fuzzy slippers, PJ's and a blanket watching a game thats going nowhere....that put me to sleeep. So, I went on line, changed the avatar, and put myself to bed....I then felt guilty, so I turned the tv on, and did watch them win...cindyo....LORD only knows whats gona happen tonite...

I haven't missed a pitch yet.

As for CindyO....a short mid-game cat nap was enough for her to see the end.

Pats are Monday night.

Please don't be nice to the Rays... I think they have about ten fans. All those people rooting for them at "the Trop"....displaced NYers who hate the Sox.

even though the sox lost, it was a terrific game right thru the end.

a game of good pitching and good defense from both teams

sorry to have our hometown boys of summer lose their quest, but glad to see the rays, a team with few fans, and a crummy stadium and no real hope, do well.
(imo)

the rays held 1st place for a long time this season and now they are in the series where they've earned their place. (imo)

so next yr for the sox and what are thoughts on jason varitek's free agent status?

Even more for them to be proud of in today's sporting environment of "play offs" where the guy who wins day in and day out is not necessarily on the top of the heap at the end of the day.

He made $10 mill this yr. Offer him 2 years at $6.5 mill/yr; there's nobody out there.

We can afford it...Boston fans fill the park every night. In turn, the owners invest in a good product.

Rays players deserved to win....their owners and fans (all ten of them) do not.

Varitek's girlfriend is Hiedi Watney....he left his wife...so me thinks he will stick around to be with her...He's a great catcher, rather bad with the bat....Not many captains around anymore

Not sure if he left wife or vice versa. Jason can't hit, but he's a classy guy.....the matter has been handled with class and out of the media. Heidi showed up after the split.

For those who don't know, Heidi is the rather attractive reporter for the Sox TV network.

CindyO is right...not many captains around anymore.

WOW, had not heard that Jason left his wife or vise versa, that is too bad. Or too good however you want to look at it. No. 33 has been my favorite Red Sox player for a long time-his dedication to the game and professionalism showed me how a good team leader should be. He definately has to do some sole searching as far as his bat. As invaluable he is behind the plate, it is only 1/2 of the game. He never really was a GREAT hitter-having an average associated with most catchers, that I know of at least. Lets just hope that when he is resigned that he will look into his swing and approach for 2009. GO RED SOX!!!

Since we've been writing about Varitek, thought you might enjoy seeing a picture of my modified "lawn jockey", which has #33 (our address) on the back.

Our neighbor was throwing an old lawn jockey out, so I asked if I could have it. They said "OK" on the condition I don't put it in front of the house. I said "not to worry, you won't recognize it when I'm done".

What do you think?
