Last night, the wonderful wonderful Red Sox charmed their way into the World Series. Shane Victorino totally earned his paycheck by hitting a grand slam in the 7th inning, and then Craig Breslow and Koji Uehara rocked the innings and got three up three down in order to clinch the American League Championship Series. It was AMAZING. And SO SO SO exciting for me who never gets to watch anything, but got to watch the last two innings in the game. And the celebration after. It was terrific!!!!! The boys were so excited and had such a great time celebrating. AND I'M SO EXCITED!!!! WE'RE IN THE WORLD SERIES FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX YEARS!!!
The only issue that I had with this last night was my company. I was watching the end of the game with my uncle, who is Canadian and prefers hockey to baseball. So he had lots of questions, and he really did not understand why they were celebrating when they still have another series to play. I tried to explain that they were celebrating their terrific job so far, but he didn't understand it. And he also didn't understand why Koji won the MVP for the series. Uh because he was AMAZING throughout the whole freaking series. I mean come on, a closer can make or break a team. They can be up by a million points, but if a closer sucks, they're totally not guaranteed a win. If their closer is awesome, they are pretty much a guaranteed a win. So hell yeah our awesome closer deserves a MVP award. So besides that little annoyance, I am so so so so so so so so happy that we're going back, and that our amazing team is getting the attention they deserve!! This series starts on Wednesday, and it's going to be so much fun!!! In closing, I leave you the video of their celebration!
