To quote the Globe headline after our 2004 World Series win, "YES!!!" The Orioles scored the final run in the bottom of the 10th to beat the Yankees 10-9. And the Sox are the AL East champs!!!
I'm so happy. :) I jumped up & down and whisper-yelled. ;) I then called my parents, who were half-asleep, but excited, and both of my best friends. Left a msg. for one of them & chatted for a bit with the one who lives in New York.
I've been watching the coverage on NESN of the celebration. I love how excited the players are. After the chaos of champagne-spraying in the clubhouse (they all wore swim goggles!), they're mostly all out on the field now celebrating with the fans. They're running around in shorts & division champ T-shirts, spraying champagne on the fans, smoking cigars, & giving high fives out like candy. :)
I love this team & I love Red Sox Nation. On to the playoffs, you guys!
