Don't need to use our Game 7 tickets

It would have fun to be there, but this is just fine.

And it is full of poetic justice:

It was the Cardinals who beat the Sox in 1946 and 1967. And after last years Game 7 disaster with the Yankees, beating them after being down 0-3 was tremendous. I scoffed at the thought that if the Twins had beaten the Yankees and we went on to win the world series it wouldn't count, but....

No more curse chants; no more 1918 chants.

Being a fan was lots of work - many nights at Fenway Park, 2 games in SanFrancisco and 1 in Denver, watching at least 100 games on TV, listening to others on the radio, checking scores on my cell, studying the stats, the paper, ESPN, talking, thinking, ......It's worth it.

And now to bed, I'm tired.

Being a fan was lots of work (emphasis added)

WAS lots of work? What, do you think you're done? Are you planning to stop being a fan?

Geesh! Break one lousy little curse, and all the boys want to do is go to bed.


we get the winter off, now. to sleep. to let it sink in. and then the work starts again. it's just that, this time, the work paid off, so we get to be giddy before our winter of rest.

Actually, the work is going to start pretty soon... we get to start fretting about which of the many key members of this team who are eligible for free agency are going to still be here next season.

Shhhh. I was trying to make it to the parade deluded.

all the boys want to do is go to bed.

You got a better idea?

congratulations!

i confess to being glad of no game seven. this was lovely and stress free. well compared to last year, anyway.

I admit to feeling some stress when they loaded the bases in the 8th and failed to score. In other years, that would have been the start of some kind of disaster.

Which reminds me: despite everything, the Cards showed some really spectacular defense, especially in the last game. If their big hitters hadn't all gone to sleep simultaneously, we might have witnessed some real drama this week.
