JOY JOY JOY
I did not write another post about the Red Sox all year long. It was the first year in a long time that the Red Sox did not bring me much joy.
This year… WOW!
This was a different team.
This was a magical team.
This team genuinely loved baseball.
This team played every game just trying to win that day.
This team played for each other. This was a special team!
At the beginning of the season, I had the same hope I have every season, even though just about everyone else, or at least all of the “experts”, wrote them off. But I had hope, I had faith, I believed.
Imagining that the Red Sox would go from last to first was one thing, but imagining that the Red Sox would become the World Series Champions?
JOY JOY JOY!!!! INCREDIBLE JOY!
Thank You Red Sox for an incredible year of joy!!!!
