Stock up on the cucumbers to soothe your swollen eyes from lack of sleep. Put away your designer clothing, the only names you’ll be wearing if you live in Boston are Victorino, Pedroia, Ortiz, Ellsbury & Uehara. Grow your beard (I’m Italian and Jewish, this shouldn’t be a problem). Tell your kid’s teachers there probably won’t be much homework doing for a few weeks. Root, root, root for the home team. Forget college for your first born, and spend the savings on the best seats at Fenway. Plan accordingly for Kenmore Square traffic. Fuck the law and scalp some tickets. Pretend you’re on the team. Buy some peanuts and cracker jack, don’t care if you ever get back. Stock up on beer. Eat only hotdogs until we win. We want a Victorino, I mean victory. Bring it Cardinals. You’re in Boston Strong territory. Ba, Ba, Ba.

  1. Toni,

    Truly moved by your post — it captures the spirit of a baseball fan (and maybe even more specifically a Red Sox fan) who’s team has made it to the world series. Thank you once again.
