The Soxs win during a Lunar Eclipse. Hmmmmmm. Cosmic Weirdness or Good Baseball? You decide. My husband had an interesting point on his blog about this win.
At approximately 11:40 last night, Boston baseball fans forever lost the right to blame their team’s woes on a decades-dead player. Instead from now on, win or lose, their team’s fortunes will now rest squarely on their own heads. Henceforth no matter what happens with the Boston Red Sox, it’s their fault. If/when the team shows up next year bearing no resemblance at all to their current state, the fans don’t get to claim that Babe Ruth caused over half of them to be up for free agency this year.
This is, of course, a mortal blow to the perpetually victimized Red Sox Nation, whose team is no longer a collection of pre-destined losers who will always break your heart, but instead…just another team. And that may turn out to be the most heartbreaking development yet.
Which is true. Now only the Cubs hold that sort of record. Anyone for a Yankees vs. Cubs game next year?
I have posted some new pictures of Caroline including a few of her costume.

The Costume is the last couple of pictures but this set catches us up to last Tuesday. Matt is Matt Anderson who is Jewel
