The caps did it; RedSox don't get swept

So bratman called us in the 6th to harass us and while talking to us the Yankees tied it up and then went ahead. At the bottom of the ninth I said "we should be wearing our caps" and we put them on and sure enough, they worked - the sox tied it up. It took until the 12th and a few more pieces of firewood (our house is unheated) and we won with a David Ortiz homerun. It was a 5 hour game and the temperature had gotten down to close to 40 at the ballpark.

So we get to go to tomorrow's game after all.
