The D. Rays vs Richie's Phils? I wonder what the odds were in Vegas on that combination back in April? My dad was a big and log-suffering Red Sox fan who never saw them win the Series in his lifetime (1930-1999). I was there to watch him grimace as the ball went right through Buckner's legs so long ago though. That was as close as my dad ever got with the Red Sox. Remember 1967 and Carl Yaztremski and the Cards and Bob Gibson? I got to watch every game.
My Tigers went a long time until 1968, then it was years before Kirk Gibson's big day at old Tiger Stadium back in the 1980s. And you guys stopped our Rockies 25-game winning streak, so I don't really feel so bad for your Red Sox either. I've been to Fenway in my lifetime and it's a crazy place. I so loved the beer vendors out near the right field foul pole there with their crazy Boston accents.
Go Devil Rays!!! Sorry Richie, maybe next time.
