About to settle in for my traditional World Series watching. Once every 18 years or so, I kick everyone out of the house and watch the Red Sox play in the Fall Classic.*

Now, if I can just remember how

In light of Game One, here is Curt Schilling’s Top Ten list from David Letterman: “Top Ten Secrets To The Boston Red Sox Comeback”

10. Unlike the first three games, we didn’t leave early to beat the traffic.
9. We put flu virus in Jeter’s gatorade.
8. Let’s just say Pete Rose made some phone calls for us.
7. We asked Pokey Reese to be a little less pokey.
6. It’s not like we haven’t won a big game before–it’s just been 86 years.
5. Honestly, I think we were tired of hearing about the Patriots.
4. The messages of encouragement Martha sent on prison napkins.
3. We pretended the baseball was Letterman’s head.
2. What’d you expect–we have a guy who looks like Jesus!
1. We got Babe Ruth’s ghost a hooker and now everything’s cool.

*Actually, Whiny is at Lake Brantley H.S. homecoming and the Mrs. took Pepperkat out to a movie. No kicking was involved. Though I did pout a bit.

    I still can’t watch! I want to have Johnny Damon’s baby. Yeah, I’m a lesbian…but I need that man’s sperm! Mercy, he is beautiful.

    wow, they won. 11-9 ain’t bad. highest scoring game in the World Series ever, if i heard correctly.

    perhaps your dark rituals worked, this time.
