A New Day Dawns

How appropriate that the final out came just past midnight, because regardless of what happens in the World Series, a new day has dawned in the history of Boston baseball.

They not only beat the Yankees. They beat the Yankees in the most historic, epic, gut-checking, odds-defying way. In their house. In the most humiliating way possible: down 0-3, one inning away from being swept, they somehow picked themselves off the mat and won four Game 7s, draining their bullpen, crippling their best starter, and getting both clutch hits and lights-out pitching. They did not fear their destiny, they grabbed it.

The Boston Red Sox engineered the greatest collapse in the history of baseball, committed by the game's most legendary franchise, one that has tormented it for nearly nine decades.

The Red Sox are American League champions. The Red Sox will host Game 1 of the World Series on Saturday. I am so grateful to them. Four more wins to go.

Game on!!!!
