Here we are at Game 2, and things are not going for us at the moment. I didn’t think they’d play at first, with it raining the way it was. Now the Astros are up 1-0 in the top of the 2nd. And in the bottom of the 2nd, they come back to make it 1-2!! Go Go Sox!!
Another tie up…how do the **** Astros keep doing this? Good, Sox have a man on third, but with 2 outs..excuse me while I start chewing my nails again…
Still 2-2 in the top of the 5th. Then the Astros go up 4-2, what the **** is going on? They keep letting the Astros get back in the game, not the way to win! Uribe freezes up? ****, that’s just pure ****! And then Iguchi gets picked off…they’re ******* the game away! And on the replay it looked close, guess that’s why the umps get paid the bucks… Let’s see bottom of the 7th, they’d better get MOVING if they are going to win this freakin game!
And Paulie Konerko smacks a GRAND SLAM!!! After going 0 fer 3 tonight, he PARKS one!! Way to go!!! And then they tie it up AGAIN!!
What’s up with Jenks, throwing nothing but junk??? Bottom ninth…. HOLY ****, Posednik slams a walk off homer!!! Interesting tidbit… 11 of last 12 teams to go up 2 games to 0 have gone on to win the series…. COULD THIS BE THE YEAR???? You know Shoeless Joe is rooting for them too!!!
Here we are, in the World Series for the first time since 1959!!! Sox fans have waited, hoping against hope every year, and it has finally paid off. I can’t believe I’m watching my beloved Sox playing for the title of 2005 World Series champion!!
This game had me biting my nails most of the time. It seemed every time we scored, the Astros found their motivation again. It was nice seeing Clemens get popped and having to leave the game. If he’s hurt enough not to play, that really hurts the Astros, but is a big help to us! It was nice to see Crede and Uribe playing in top form and like a well oiled machine. This team really has the potential to take it all this year… Now I’m anxiously awaiting Game 2 tonight..dare we pray for a sweep?
They have done it!! The Sox are going to the World Series!! I have to admit, the final ALCS game against the Angels was a nailbiter for the first 5 innings. It was like it all went wrong for a little while there…but they bounced back! I had my doubts about Contreras for a while, but Ozzie proved why he is the manager. And what a manager he’s proved to be.
One question from tonight..who did Escobar think he was fooling with that ******** "oh I put it in my glove" then tagging with an empty glove while tossing the ball to Erstad? Even the TV guys weren’t fooled for a second, but he thought the ump BEHIND him and in full view of that crappy acting job would be??
Now it’s a wait and see, although I’m pretty sure it will be Houston blowing into the Windy City. But GO GO SOX!! This is our year, bask in it…and WIN THE SERIES!!!
I can’t believe it…we’re ONE game away from the Series!! The Sox have been playing in spectacular fashion, although I have to admit we got two lucky breaks on ump calls last night. And both on Posednik, what are the odds?
I’ll be on pins and needles all day today waiting for the game tonight…this most likely will be all she wrote for the Angels 2005 season. They just can’t seem to get going against our Sox. Garcia was stellar last night, very focused and intent. I will post again after the game tonight . GO SOX!!!!
Thought I would also post an update on my "fantasy" league. I’m up to 15 May 2004, and I have the Sox at 33-2. I have posted the standings and stats here for anyone else who is playing HH2k4 or is interested in it.
If you are using HH2k4, would love to see and hear how you are doing and with what team…
Woohoo!! The Sox win their FIRST postseason series since 1917!! Way to go Pale Hose!! I was beginning to think I’d never see the day it would happen, and then they go and SWEEEEPPP the Red Sox, finishing them off at Fenway, no less! Felt good to see them celebrating. I believe the sweep will fire them up enough to take on either the Angels or the Spankees. I truly believe they are going ALL THE WAY! I think they will end up facing the Cards, and yes, they can beat even them. Remember, the Cards had a better record by only one game…. This is their year…. The curses are falling, Red Sox last year, White Sox this year….and God forbid, the Cubs next year?? Yikes! I think the Cubs are permanently cursed. That’s what you get for not letting a goat into the stadium…*snicker*
This has got to be the best, most exciting three games I’ve ever watched the Sox play, and the next series wil be even better, I’m sure! And the World Series? Can’t even begin to think about that right now…for now it’s Anaheim or New York. Not sure who I would rather have the White Sox face, but I’m sure they can handle either one.
Well, they’re in the playoffs…. My boss is a Red Sox fan so this should be a VERY interesting week. I think they can make it past the Red Sox, it’s the Yankees or Angels that worry me. I’m afraid the Sox are running out of steam. And for those who say a true fan isn’t critical, that’s not true. A TRUE fan is both critical and honest about the team. Only a blind fanatic doesn’t see the good and the not so good. And blind fanatics live in a fantasy world.
I have to work today, so I’ll be catching the score on my phone. Yes, I’m that addicted! But hey, it’s the PLAYOFFS!!!
