So tonight's the night. I'm gonna see if I can get out of band practice early to catch the tail end of the game. Though Adam and Dave are very interested in the game too so I imagine it won't be too difficult.
Jim Caple pretty much nailed this evening. Tonight is about so much more than just game seven. It's a culmination of many, many, many... many dissapointing post seasons as a Red Sox fan.
Jim points out how much of a miracle it was that Curt Schilling could pitch last night and pokes some fun at it. And it even makes me think of Halloween, which is just around the corner.
"Will the Red Sox finally make history by overcoming their old nemesis? Or will the Yankees kick their old rivals in the groin again just as they're within reach of the promised land? Or will Boston doctors suture Ted Williams' head onto Johnny Damon's body?"
Tonight I will continue to pray while I watch and hope that neither I, nor any of my older family members suffer a heart attack as we watch Boston and New York face off one more time.
It's Game 7 between the Yankees and the Red Sox. The past century, the past two Octobers, the past 25 meetings and most importantly, the past six games have led up to this.
Or as Boston first baseman Doug Mientkiewicz said, "We've been playing Game 7 since Game 4."
