I gave up on the Red Sox after 1986 (yes, that long ago), but since they actually won a World Series in my lifetime, I've decided to give my hometown club a second chance. So I'm actually watching the game against the Indians right now, rooting for my old team. We'll see if they can pull off another upset like they did three years ago and go to the World Series. As I write this, they're ahead 3 runs to 2...
I can just feel that disappointment welling up though. Ready to suck me back in, and then BAM! Hopes crushed and another 100 years of close calls and snatching defeat from victory. Just now, the tying run is in scoring position because of some wonky outfield error... urgh.
Update: Yay! Sox won!
