If the curse of bambino was undone in 2004, this year confirmed that Boston is a championship city once again. I just saw the 4th game of the World Series and caught the winning innings. Rather a nailbiting game, with the runs only coming in at the 7th and 8th innings. The Japanese pitcher who had won the 3rd game sort of faltered at the 8th inning and let the Rockies gain 2 runs, so he threw in the towel. But in the end, its a sweep for the Sox. I can imagine that a lot of people will not be in at school or work Monday morning in Boston, perhaps less so than the revelry that came over the city the first time they regained their status 3 years ago.
(Monday morning, barangay elections equals a national holiday; this Thursday and Friday are also national holidays. This entire week is perfect for either bumming around or taking a trip. Decisions, decisions.)
