For three days, I’ve been attempting to write a blog about the World Series games. Tonight, I fell into the game and left the blog unfinished. Now, I can only point back to the blogs I’ve written this season. Thank you Red Sox for providing another season of baseball games played with heart.

Tonight, I was jumping up and down, cheering Papelbon’s last strikeout and almost immediately, Fox interviewed Varitek. He was emotional and I had it together until that moment and then I started to cry too. GOD BLESS THE BOSTON RED SOX!!!

Thank you for being a group of guys who play together, for each other, for your fans— with HEART.  Back in June, I didn’t know if you’d get to the playoffs, no less sweep the World Series. I sit, a few hours later, filled with awe.

THANK YOU!!

Postscript October 29, 2007
Thank you to my friends for kindly putting up with my quick exits, distracted conversations, and insistent nature this post-season. I know I tend to fall away in Red Sox Nation during baseball season. I appreciate that most of you understand my love of the Red Sox and baseball, in general, and leave me be when you know there’s a game on. Also, just as important, you know to come to back gate at Wildlands, knock and drop down into a game with me— is there anything more wonderous and wonderful than game day audio, knitting, espresso, and the Boston Red Sox? I think not. Gee, spring training seems a really really long time from now… ah, the off season. Right…. the holidays here we come!
