I Think I Love Everything

Thanks, guys.

Seriously.

Just...thanks.

My grandfather has been waiting 84 years for this to happen.

I'll write on my oddyssey more when I'm not tipsy and tired. To all my friends in Boston, celebrating on Boylston Street and Kenmore Square...take care of yourselves.

I'm so bloody happy right now.

The Holder of the Place

Due to obscene time constraints, I can't write about yesterday until tomorrow. Consider this a placeholder for about three topics:

1) Why Yesterday Was Awesome

2) The Songs You Need to Have for the World Series

3) But Joe, How Can You Date a Yankees Fan?

hoo-ah, mess chief.

You Couldn't Make This Up

scuromezzo: but I was screaming like a girl tonight

Above all...

...you must remember this.

That nothing ever lasts forever.

You must remember this.

Nothing lasts forever.

Nothing.

Not pain, not joy, not sorrow, not pleasure.

Nothing.

You will remember this when things seem their greatest, and the thought will bring you down to reality.

But...

You will remember this when things are at their bleakest, when hope and faith have deserted you and the world seems a cold and gray place.

And this thought will lift you up and bring you solace.

Rome fell. The kings are no more. Even the sun will die someday.

Nothing lasts forever. And if nothing lasts forever, then all things are brief.

So here's to the brief period of time between 1918 and the time the final out is made in the greatest game of our lives. It will happen soon.

Because nothing is forever, and all things are brief.

Don't lose hope yet.

Y2 S0

And yet I'm still not in full on panic mode... yes there's about a million things I'd like to change about this series so far... but its got a ways to go yet... Bronson Arroyo is destined to be our lord and saviour... I've been saying it since last year.

And when you hear quotes like this.... You just can't feel too bad about baseball. I lvoe Pedro and love seeing him throw as hard as he has all season last night. I just wish our bats had a better stroke right now...

"I actually realized that I was somebody important, because I caught the attention of 60,000 people, plus you guys [reporters], plus the whole world watching a guy that if you reverse time back 15 years ago, I was sitting under a mango tree without 50 cents to actually pay for a bus. And today I was the center of the attention of the whole city of New York.

"I thank God for that and you know what? I don't regret one bit what they do out there. I respect them and I actually kind of like it because I don't like to brag about myself, I don't like to talk about myself, but they made me feel important." -Pedro

Soxtober Syndrome

Here we go again ladies and gentlemen....

Yanks 1 Sox 0 for the series... but that's why you play more than one game. I'm still happy to have the guys on my roster to root for over theirs...

And I really liked how we showed we can spark late against an October Yankees team.

Where do I have to go to donate my foot to Curt? Cause I would...
