Oh Darn! So close, so close.... rats.

The Sox didn't make it.

After leveling the series with that 4-2 win Saturday it looked like the inevitable. The Boston Red Sox would again get in the World Series and do another sweep.

Not this time.

In 2008, it almost happened that Pats, Celtics and Sox would hold championships at the same time. Even as that didn't happen, the near-misses reinforce the dominance of Boston teams in professional sports. An era that began with the Patriots winning the 2002 Superbowl.

Stayin' Alive. It's that time of the year again - Sox rally!

Unbelievable (cliched, and true).

It's October and they've done it again, a comeback! Back from the dead in a playoff elimination game.

It's October, and (again) when they're written off, they're right back in.

Nevermind it's not over yet for the series - but to come back from 0-7 to win 8-7 is plain amazing. To do this after being whipped by the Rays in Game 3 and 4, and that too in an elimination game, is miraculous.

Look up this article, if it hasn't sunk in. =)

Wait a minute - 'Joe the Plumber'?

I must have missed something here about this plumber. He's looking to buy a $250000 company? Must be one heck of a plumbing business in these times.

Good job he got mentioned 26 times during the debate - that's one amazing bi-partisan plug for his venture, on national TV no less! This is this Joe Sixpack's 15 minutes of fame for sure.

The Phillies, after losing 10000+ games, are actually in the World Series. Who'd have thought?

Now for the Sox - reports are that the grand ALCS comeback will not happen this time.
