>Go Sox!


We’ve just come back from a holiday in Boston (USA). We had a great time and there’s lots to think through and write about. Still catching up with laundry, mail, photos etc, so in-depth thought will have to wait!

I felt that I had to publish this photo today. The Boston Red Sox are playing the Tampa Bay Rays in the baseball play-offs, but are currently being pounded. They are trailing 3-1 in the best of seven series, losing the last two games at home (1-9 and 4-13 respectively). Now I’m not an expert on baseball, but that’s not good… not good at all.

But as any Red Sox fan (and it seems that almost everyone in Boston is part of the ‘Sox nation’) will tell you, things were worse when they played the New York Yankees in 2004. Then they were 3-0 down, but went on to win the next 4 games, clinching the series and going on to win their first World Series since 1918. They qualified as wild cards in 2004, as they did this year – a good omen?.

They might win tomorrow night and take the series back to Florida for the last two matches. Hope springs eternal so you never know – GO SOX!!
