As Yogi Berra said: "It ain't over till it's over"

We were at the Red Sox game tonight. It dragged and it was slow and the Red Sox were behind 7-0 at the middle of the 7th inning. The game was boring; some fans had already left. It was pretty demoralizing but we hung in and still sung a spirited Take Me Out To the Ballgame at the Seventh inning stretch.

Then the Sox scored 4 runs in the bottom of the 7th and from then on everyone stood up and cheered with passion. In the 8th they scored 3 more to tie it up. Sweet Caroline was quite sweet ; rsc goes to the men's room at that time but I belt it out.

And then in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs another run got scored.

I Love that Dirty Water.

The crowd was extremely loud for that last almost an hour (I should have brought ear plugs - post season is noisier). It was an unbelievable win. One of the best we've ever been to - well there was game 5 of the ALCS in 2004 which lasted 5 hrs and 49 minutes; this one was a bit over 4 hours.

I wonder what those people who left early think. I suppose some will wake up tomorrow to read the headlines and be somewhat surprised. A bit like reverse of the Dewey Wins headlines.

Now we have to beat the Rays twice in St Petersburg.
