Roller Coaster Ride

Ever since this morning's heartbreaking loss I've been trying to come up with some pithy, or witty, or sage, observation about the conclusion of the 2003 Red Sox season.

I've got nothing.

Like millions of others, I'm tremendously disappointed. So close.

Maybe I'll post more about it later, maybe not, but for now I just want to congratulate the Red Sox for what (we need to remember) was really a great season. We didn't get the result we wanted, but it really was a very exciting and entertaining season.

Cowboy up, rally karaoke guy, shaved heads, hating the bullpen early on, worshiping the bullpen later, Theo the boy wonder, Wakefield, Lowe, Pedro, the Monster seats, Manny calling in sick, drinks with the Yanks, Millar, Mueller, Ortiz, Trots' game winning homer, coming back from 0-2 in Oakland, 2 ALCS wins in Yankee stadium, and so much more. It was a long season. Lots of good stuff there. Thanks Sox.

[so close]

Spot on. For the first time in recent memory, I felt like they were a real team - the shaved heads was just the physical manifestation of that. But I really felt like they were a team by the end of the season, and THAT is why I think they played as well as they did.

At least from what I saw of the playoffs, there weren't any serious errors that made the Red Sox lose, like the one committed by he who shall remain nameless.

Man. I needed to read this today. Thanks. It was a great season.
