No, don't worry, ceiling tiles aren't falling on people and the tracks aren't broken or anything. But Paul McNamara says it's really past time to paint over the Josh Beckett memorial.
Just in case there were any doubt, Django Bliss shows us for whom Mrs. Mallard is rooting in the World Series.
Victorino! And of course Uehara ended it with a strikeout. Bring on the Cardinals.
UPDATE, 12:15 a.m.: Joyous crowds at Lansdowne and Brookline celebrated by breaking into a celebratory chant of "Yankees suck!" David Ortiz, meanwhile, announced "This is our BLEEP city!" and he really said "BLEEP" this time. Luis Tiant celebrating as only Luis Tiant can.
Next up: Uehara flies around the earth backwards to go back in time and save the world.
And Detroit takes notice:
She walked through Detroit Metro Airport on Monday morning, wearing the most ugly, outlandish, gaudy outfit you have ever seen.
She wore a Red Sox coat and Red Sox hat and a pair of Red Sox glasses and Red Sox nail polish and Red Sox earrings and it was all wrapped up in a large, flowing Red Sox shawl.
It was enough to make you want to vomit.
On the off chance you missed it, Steve Horgan is the cop captured exulting over David Ortiz's home run, even as Torii Hunter was flipping backwards into the bullpen in front of him.
Naturally, this became a meme in roughly 5 seconds and now it's everywhere - although there seems to be some disagreement on whether Horganing requires somebody to be up-ended in front of you. Some early examples:
Before that epic grand slam, you may recall, Alex Avila hit a home run, a woman caught the ball and then some Sox superfan ripped it out of her hands and threw it back on the field. Yahoo Sports reports he spent a good part of the night being a racist jerk.
The Globe reports the BRA yesteday approved the Yawkey Way deal with the Sox.
As Michael Dyer notes:
On this date last year the Red Sox lost to the Rays to fall to 68-82 on the season. DiceK pitched, Bobby V managed. This is better.
In this case, that the beer at Fenway Park is wicked expensive.
How many teams have won two non-doubleheader games in one day on walkoffs?
Matthew Kory exclaims:
I turned the game off after Dempster gave up the grand slam. It was over. The Sox were done for the night and so was I. Except, as it turned out, neither of us were. I called up the score on my phone hours later. "They WON!" I yelled. My wife came running. "What?" she said. I grinned. I couldn't help it.
