So, get this....
And I thought about it a bit before the series was definitely heading back to Fenway, but now we're on the possible brink.
And I didn't think about all these little details till last night...
Firstly, the 2 losses the Red Sox have in this 109th edition of the Fall Classic are their first World Series losses since Game 7 of 1986.
They swept their last 2 series, and had home field advantage in both, meaning they clinched on the road every time.
SO, they now have a chance to win a World Series at Fenway for the first time since beating the Chicago Cubs at home in Game 6 of the 1918 World Series by a score of 2-1.
How about that?
That's pretty damn cool for Red Sox fans, though obviously, and they are well aware, everything could crash and burn. Don't think for one second those fans are saying to themselves, "Well, we've had the spoils after going 86 years, it's not gonna feel as sweet." They very well know, #1, how hard it is to win a World Series, and #2, how long it could be till they're back.
So, take the bull by the horns.
And beat dem Redbirds to oblivion.
Here's the Random Song of the Day.
WAIT. TILL. NEXT. YEAR.
LET'S. GO. METS.
