Cardinals. Detroit had nothing in their bull-pen, among other issues...like the 21-million dollar man grounding out to second and/or a double play each time at bat. But sounds like the first batter for the Sox was walked...so...oh boy.
Last night, when Jon Lester got the start and took the mound,
Game 1 of the Series played on Fenway's hallowed ground,
Pitching was amazing; held the Cardinals to 1.
Red Sox hitters came alive to score us 8... We won!
My B hat is blue and red and yet, at heart, it's pink...
And, since I am superstitious, I've begun to think
Part of why we're winning is connected to the beard.
Yes, I know that's crazy but we Boston fans are weird.
I look at the evidence; the balls that bounced away,
Watched as umps reversed a call - don't see that every day -
Saw a pitcher call for one and then just stop and stare.
Pretty clear to me; the sports gods must like facial hair.
