About beating the Yankees yesterday.

I think that this could really be a turning point. Just about all the press is saying that this wasn't a case of Clemens and the Yanks losing, as much as it was the Sox gutting it out, finding the weakness, and hammering at it.

I think that all of Red Sox Nation could come to look at this win as a demonstration that we are not just Destiny's Plaything. We need not be the honored opponents that serve up Clemen's 300th on Memorial Day, in Yankee Stadium, with his Mom in the stands.

We can grab "destiny" by the tail and fling it over the first base stands. Damn the Curse, it need not dominate us, nothing is predestined. We can influence the outcome. Maybe this IS the year!

But they tease you. They do this. They make you believe.

And then they tap dance all over your heart.

Yeah, sure. Maybe this time the hot babe will actually sleep with you after you buy her all sorts of presents. And the RSox will respond to your devotion with a championship.

Okay. Today's hurt. I watched it when i got home. Damn.

But, truth be told, if before the series i was asked if i wanted a 2-1 Boston series win with the one loss being Roger's 300th, or a 1-2 series with the one win being Roger's denial -- I would have gone for the 1-2.
