The Red Sox are creeping up. Round one under their belts.
Try not to get hopes up. But how can I resist?
For those who believe in omens, Boston's World Series championship run in 2004 also began with a three-game sweep over the Angels. (From Sox punch ALCS ticket with sweep)Thus, the beginning of a very stressful month for me, as I restlessly flip channels back and forth, checking scores. Hardly daring to watch, covering my face with my hands and peeking through.
