There might be many reasons... [Oct. 20th, 2004|09:16 pm]

People will talk for years about this victory... the Boston Red Sox, down by 3, had to win 4 in a row to beat the Yankees. No team has ever done this.

People will talk about heroic efforts by pitchers, and by hitters, and by fielders; people will talk about great determination and wanting it more.

Me... I'm going to credit it to a burst of love, and joy, and hope that emanated from nearby Moburn on Sunday afternoon... just because it seems right to imagine more than one piece of magic being set in motion that day.

No baseball team has ever won a seven game playoff series after being down by three. The 1975 New York Islanders did it, and the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs did it in the finals to win the Stanley Cup. But then, y'all don't pay too much attention to the NHL down there. :)

Still, it is a lovely thought, and I have no reason to disbelieve it.
