Hallelujah Red Sox (by dantesdad)

Dear God. We actually won.

It is 12:51. Fifty-one minutes ago, the Boston Red Sox made baseball history by winning the ALCS--and beating their archrivals, the New York Yankees--when they were originally down three to zero. Forty-eight minutes ago, I ran out of my dorm room, joining thousands of fans running toward Fenway Park. There are people thronging Yawkey Way and Brookline Avenue.

I have pictures, which I will share as soon as they're uploaded.

God. I hoped, and wished, and prayed for a win. And we did it. We won. And now we rejoice. Even if we don't win the World Series, this is... amazing. This town never fails to astound me.

I was going to post a scream of delight. I've screamed, and shrieked, and chanted, "Who's your daddy?" And the excitement still hasn't abated.

So this is my scream of delight. Thank you Big Papi Ortiz, the MVP, and my savior Johnny Damon. Thank you D-Lowe, who pitched an amazing game tonight, and Schilling, who went above and beyond for his team.

And thank you, my fellow Red Sox fans, for believing.

I'm supposed to be at drama rehearsal right now, but there's a RAD course being taught in Alumnae Hall. It's too damn cold to go running around campus to find where I'm supposed to go, so I'm in my nice warm room, playing hooky. (Or, as my Rhode Island background would like to put it, bunking.)

(Yeah, I know it's odd slang.)

(And yes, 46 degrees is too damn cold. It's only October, for cryin' out loud.)

(Great. Now I'm channeling Jack O'Neill. Except, as a Minnesotan, he would be used to this kind of weather.)

(Okay. I'll stop with the parenthetical remarks now.)

Jesus H. Christ. Doesn't the man have a home? Does he have nowhere better to live than his girlfriend's dorm room? The one that she shares with a roommate that's very uncomfortable with public displays of affection? Or, you know, groping?

*grumbles* This ain't no Motel 6. Either get a hotel room, or go find another friend. I don't care, as long as I don't have to sleep in the same room as the kissy couple.

EDIT: I think I'm cursed. Cursed, I say.

*blasts music to drown out the noise*
