All in one night

Beat the Yankees . . .
in Yankee Stadium . . .
in Game 7 of the ALCS . . .
by a wide margin . . .
to go the World Series . . .
and made real history -- 100-year kind of history . . .
Now, name me a more important day in Boston sports history. Go on.
Cannot be done.
On to wherever and whatever.
Buy the hats, sweatshirts, t-shirts, stickers, shot glasses, pennants, et al., folks. This time, all are worthy of being called artifacts of history.
No point in recounting the details - every one of you saw them or you would not be visiting this site. But for me this is the most insightful, meaningful comment on the nature of this team. I think it was Derek Lowe, but it might have been Millar, I just cannot remember, but someone on this team said that Dave Roberts was the most valuable player for stealing second and scoring in game 4. Now this, ladies and gentlemen, is not your average team -- and most definitely not 25 guys, 25 cabs.
Praise to the Belichick-led Patriots for showing the way to building a TEAM in pro sports.
Now, let's have some fun!
