And I thought I was nervous yesterday. I'm a total nervous wreck more so today than yesterday. The fact that the Sox could clinch another trip the World Series if they can pull out a win tonight against the Rays is totally making me crazy.
Of course the anxiety was driven up a few notches last night when stupid TBS had a power issue and for the first twenty minutes of the game, we got stuck with Steve Harvey.
Thank GOD for living in the New England area and being able to listen to WEEI. I left it on even after the stupid idiots at TBS got their shit fixed. I had the tv on mute and the radio on. I think I'm going to do the same thing tonight too.
Plus of course posting in the Red Sox community during the game. That is always the funnest thing ever. The comments are always fun to read and make me laugh quite a bit.
Through all of this, being down 3 to 1 again, I've read through some of the archieved posts from '04 and '07. They have helped to remind me that the Sox CAN do this.
I just hope they can pull it off. Cause I swear, they are going to kill me one day.
Always with the stress they are. But tonight it's do or die for both teams. I gotta say I think there's more preasure on the Rays because they've had TWO chances to wrap this up now and they didn't get it done.
But I wouldn't expect them to not fight hard tonight. I just hope Lester is the Lester we've counted on this whole year. He has been nothing but solid this year. And it's absolutely amazing.
Please, God, don't let this be false hope. PLEASE, don't screw up tonight Sox. PLEASE, Lester, pitch like the ace you are.
One game, one inning, one pitch at a time. It's how we've got to think and we'll be okay. I Believe. And I have Faith.
