The Red Sox are in the World Series!
With a decisive 10-3 win (although don't ask me to relive the game; that inning by Pedro took years off my life), the Sox pushed past the New York Yankees to the 2004 World Series.
Last year, I was officially baptized into the cursed and wailing fandom that is Red Sox Nation. Last year was pure heart ache and sorrow.
This year is the total polar opposite. Joy. Elation. Relief.
The Red Sox have done what no baseball team has done: come back from a 3-0 hole to force and win a best of seven series.
And now we're in the World Series!
