Fenway Park, Boston, MA
04 October 2013
Above, before the start of the first post-season playoff game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Boston Red Sox and fans pay tribute to the victims and heroes of the Boston Marathon bombings at Fenway Park in Boston.
The fact that our Red Sox are even playing in a post-season game is amazing to us here. To win the first game 12-2 is even more amazing considering our last four games were losers. We got a few lucky breaks in the game and took advantage of them. Tampa Bay will not go down easily so today, again, we face off with them at Fenway. Having the “home field advantage,” I believe, helped big-time in our win today. So onward and upward we go. From “last to first” we are moving through the post-season now and, hopefully, our beloved Red Sox will prevail.
Even if we don’t go all the way in this endeavor, just the fact that we have made it this far is uplifting to all of us fans who have stuck with our team through thick and thin these last couple of years. The team we have now just seems magical to me.
Cheers for our team!
It’s in every one of us to be wise;
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.
