Admittedly I am a bit of a fair weather fan but they have kept my wife and I on the edge of our seats.

We where about an hour into game 7 when the power went out, only about the second time in 6 years of living here.

I tried running a small TV off of my UPS but it was to much load.

Luckily it came back on before the game was over.

Bob,

They earned their shot. I'd like to see them take it now too.

Bob,
Being a life long Yankee fan, I surely gloated after the first three games, especially the 19-8 win on 10/16. But we choked and the Sox did their job. Good job.
My 7 year old said we need to cheer for St. Louis, since the Sox beat us Sounds Fair.

I"m not much of a fan until the near the end of the season, when I become a fan/fiend.

Yep, The Sox earned their way, and provided some exciting action in the playoffs.

I want to see them take it.(since the Dodgers are out )...S

Huge fan here, wife and kids too. Stress level over the last couple of weeks has been incredible. Too hard to type with fingers crossed.

Our house has been pretty interesting since Ed (my dh) is from Houston and Cody is a Yankees fan - one of his first toys was a bear in a baseball uniform named Mr. Yankee.

Cody's on a steroid as part of his chemo and is, shall we say, a little more outwardly expressive and when the Sox were taking the lead he got pretty irate! Wednesday's game got him all riled up and we an had honest-to-goodness crazed fan in the house with yelling and pounding the sofa pillows and everything.

On Thursday during his spinal tap procedure one of the nurses was training another on the anesthesia and they were documenting Cody's blood pressure and I laughed and said it was a good deal lower than it had been during the game the night before.

I'm kind of glad that the Yankees weren't in the Series with Houston or my house might not make it through the chaos and mayhem between fans here!
