Good Times Never Seemed So Good

So good! So good! So good!

Actually, I'm one of the people who thinks it was better last time. Or at least, I was more thrilled last time. But in the bottom of the 9th, after we'd woken the girls up to see the end of the game, as Papelbon ground out those outs (don't you think that inning was a metaphor for the whole season?! we're ahead, but it's close, and it's still nerve-wracking, and then we play kick-ass ball and WE DO IT! I'm still an old school sucker for nail-biting), I was pretty damn happy.

Yes, it's good the second time.

And now I am ready for a baseball break.

Except there are two small matters that need to be taken care of:

1. Mike Lowell--Yes. Yes! YES!!! (World Series MVP?! Come on Theo, just do it.)

2. A-Rod--No. No. Please please please please, put away your charts and statistics, and just say no.

(But what I really want to know is, did Beckett dance with Papelbon?)

Edited to add: I guess not, but man, I love this team.

Apparently, they're going to jig together on a flatbed during tomorrow's parade.

And YES Lowell and NO A-Rod, absolutely.
