Remember this? I always will. The moment was frozen, I was frozen. The 1,000 or so Red Sox fans at Ithaca College celebrated on the quad. I couldn't sleep afterward. At 2 AM me and 2 friends drove back to Boston. somewhere around Worcester at about 6 AM, "We Are the Champions" was played on some radio station. It hit me right then and there. It was done. No more curse, no more losing, no more being pathetic.
On Monday, the Red Sox will return to the spot where it ended. Where Renteria hit a grounder back to Foulke, where Mientkiewicz stepped on the bag. I don't care if they tear Fenway down, but I will shed a tear when Busch Stadium is imploded.
Anyway, back to the present. Another quality start by Miller. Another great outing for Mike Myers. A good outing for Timlin. A perfect inning for Foulke. Another great game for Millar. Another clutch hit for Ortiz. Another fine display of professional hitting from John Olerud. Throw them all together and you get a 6-3 win and a 2-1 series victory over a solid Anaheim, I mean Los Angeles team.
The Man of the Game is Kevin Millar who went 2 for 3 with an RBI double.
Now we go back to NL baseball for the first time since October. It worked out pretty good last time, hopefully we can beat them again.
