Cameras not allowed, but as you can see that didn't stop a lot fans from clicking away. As always, lighting is poor at these events, but the enthusiasm of the crowd was infectious. As true superfans, my sister and I found that Jackson truck, but where was Alan. Probably not there. I'm sure he was jetted in at the last moment while Trace Atkins warmed up the crowd. After his "Honkeytonk Badonkadonk" the crowd was ready for the smooth and lyrical Alan.

Not really, but after last nights disappointment, it's the least I can do to support our great Red Sox Team. Without a doubt, the boys of summer delivered a great season and post season, they just ran out of pixie dust one game short. Until next spring, Tropicana Pure Premium will taste somewhat bitter so I think a new brand is in order at the B&B for a while......... I think maybe Dole!

At 8:37pm tonight, all eyes, or at least mine, will be on this guy and the Red Sox as they play the first game of the ALCS series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Dice-K Matsuzaka is on the mound and we hope he has his A-game on................. Go Red Sox!!!!!!!
Oct 11th: Next day follow up: THEY WON! Now it's Josh Becketts turn tonight..........game 2.
Oct.12th: next, next day follow up: They Lost........ but they are coming back to Fenway and I'm sure Jon Lester will do it for us......game 3.
Oct. 15th: Ok, it's panic time. Lester, then Wakefield, failed to produe a win at home. Now we are down 3 games to 1. Tomorrow, after a day off, it is our last chance to stay in the games. If they don't win on Thursday, it's time to clean out the lockers and say "there's always next year"............
Oct. 16th: Can you believe it! The Red Sox comeback from a 7-0 deficit in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series to beat the Rays 8-7 tonight and cut Tampa Bay's series lead to 3-2. It was the second largest comeback in postseason history, eclipsed only by the Philadelphia A's rallying from 8-0 down to beat the Cubs in Game 4 of the 1929 World Series. But no team facing postseason elimination had ever rallied back from seven or more runs down. Talk about an October comeback......... Now they're off to Tampa Bay looking to take two more, and we better not doubt it.
Oct 18th: Game 6, They Won! And now, each team has 3 wins. The 7th game is tomorrow night and hopefully Jon Lester can take us to the World Series aganst the Philadelphia Phillies. While the Phillies have had a week to rest since they won their National League title, that didn't seem to work too well for the Colorado Rockies last year. The RedSox seem to be at their best as along as they keep playing. Good luck guys..................

And, we in Salem have always known that!

Congratulations to our Red Sox. Now, they're off to Tampa Bay to play those Rays.................. They may have taken the "Devil" out of their name this year, but we're wise to them just the same.

Did anyone say Monday Night Football? Now that I’m participating in a fantasy football league, the Salem City team, Donald thinks I have morphed into a sports nut. After making my picks, Donald has no chance with the remote all day as I switch back and forth rooting for teams I have no affiliation with. With the exception of the Patriots, who won by the way, hallelujah, my picks are the results of home team advantage, injuries, warm states playing in cold states, a few statistics from a previous year or results so far. And then there is women intuition. That is the real ace in my hand. Donald, although not officially on the team, makes his picks more scientifically. Being an engineer you would think he would study the stats. No, he decides each week differently. One week he goes inny, menny, minny, moe or whether he likes the color of the uniforms. (He will never pick the Bengal’s to win, as he really hates those helmets.) Yesterday, he just picked the opposite of what I picked. Seeing I picked 10 correct yesterday, that’s not working too well for him. In any case, one more game tonight puts all this to rest until Thursday when ESPN reminds me that we get to do it all over again for next Sunday. I need to get a life…………….
