I love it when a plan comes together

except that I didn't plan this.

I made it home in time to see the Sox-Yanks game. Well, from the bottom of the 2nd, anyway. Home opener at Fenway, and World Series ring day. The Sox have always been my AL team, although I really don't know why. Maybe it was the fact that they are perennial losers (except for last year). Probably though, it's because as a Dodger fan, my hatred of the Yankees is nearly genetic. You can't bleed Dodger blue and like the Yanks. So I guess it's no surprise that I like the Sox.

The rings are just gorgeous. The Red Sox B in rubies over a field of diamonds and blue sapphires on the face. One side is inscribed with each player's name and number, the other bears the motto "The Greatest Comeback in History". Inside each ring is inscribed "86 years 10/27/04"
Here's Manny Ramirez's:

Anyway, top of the third right now, 2-0 Sox with 1 out, 1 on...

(h/t Michele (sorry) for the Boston Herald article)

7-1 Sox at the end of the 4th. 8-1 Sox Win!
