I woke up feeling odd. Did the Red Sox really sweep the Cardinals to win the World Series? The morning newscast answered that question: here were the Red Sox buses, driving with a police escort from the airport to Fenway Park. Reporters were breathless, describing the last out, praising Manny Ramirez (World Series MVP), and lauding the 2004 Red Sox, winners of the World Series.
At the bus stop today, a gentleman Red Sox fan remarked "This will change the whole psyche of the Red Sox Nation." I know my own psyche has changed, for the better.
Today, Red Sox Nation wakes up to a new day as champions.
