Holy shit! We did it! We're going to the World Series!!!

Wow, did I just witness the mother of all comebacks? Down 3 games to 1, I'm pretty sure most people had given up hope... but the shining star that is the Red Sox pitching staff comes through once again!
Backed up with serious RBIs from Youk (7), Papi (4), Manny (10), Drew (6) (WTF I know right?), Pedroia (5), Tek (7), Lowell (8), Ellsbury (2), Lugo (3) Kielty (2) and just great defensive play all around, we managed to avoid the scalping the Cleveland Indians were ready to dole out.

What up World (Series)? See you in Boston!

In other news, Joe Torre... I can't believe the way Steinbrenner handled that. Oh wait, yes I can. I'm sure he'll find success elsewhere. Fresh young talent (something that Yankees haven't really had in a while) + Torres ability to manage a winning team = one lucky team somewhere else.

NY Yankees, continue to enjoy your downward spiral.
Joba Chamberlin, FU.

GAME 1 ALCS Tonite! (GO SOX!)

I couldn't blog about this earlier (and I've felt bad about it, really) because I literally get hot flashes and butterflies when I think about it. I've had to put the Red Sox into a deep chamber in my mind and try not to think about it until now.

Sox open the series at home on Friday with Beckett facing Cleveland and CC Sabathia. Don't let Sabs physique fool you, he may be fatter than Shilling, but man can he throw heat. I think if we can wear him down early we might have a chance to hit off his relievers and win, because no one is hitting off Beckett.

OCTOBER! (weather, holidays, baseball, music, BBQs)

First off...

I can't believe its already October. If I had to pick a favorite month I think this would be it. If you were fortunate enough to have your baseball team make the playoffs, then you have at least one more week of rooting for the good guys (3 weeks if you're lucky). October is usually fun for me sports wise. And with the season the Patriots are having so far it looks as though the following months will be pretty cool too.

October weather is top shelf. You finally start getting that hint of cool air in the mornings and evenings, but you can still catch a sunny 80 degree day without a problem. You wake up and toss a hoodie or a windbreaker on and in the afternoon yer good to go with sleeves rolled up. Makes for excellent cycling, cyclo-touring or walking.

October also houses one of the best holidays going, Halloween. Costumes + Candy + mischief + darkness + Misfits = awesome. I find myself listening to a lot of horror punk in October, and there is nothing wrong with that. Danzig, Misfits and Samhain are all perfect for the occasion. Its also good to put away your summertime jams (Saves The Day, Belle and Sebastian, Rites of Spring, etc) and concentrate on Kid Dynamite, The Misfits, and Kill Your Idols. These bands are perfect for the fall.

I look forward to night time BBQs too, we have this little fire pit in the back yard that provides eery light and a little heat if necessary. Perfection.
