OKAY, NY "AXIS OF EVIL" YANKEES, WE KNOW YOU'RE OUT THERE...JUST LET US ENJOY THIS FOR A FEW DAYS...

Red Sox Survive Rally, Advance to AL Championship

After Losing Five-Run Lead to Angels, Boston Finishes First Sweep Since 1975

By JIMMY GOLEN, AP

BOSTON (Oct. 8) -- The frat house full of fools will play for a pennant for the second year in a row.

David Ortiz's 10th-inning homer gave the Boston Red Sox an 8-6 victory over the Anaheim Angels on Friday, completing a three-game sweep that sent them into the AL championship series.

The Red Sox have three days to sleep off their celebration while the hated New York Yankees play the Minnesota Twins for the right to meet Boston.

I too am rooting for the Red Sox to make it to the World Series, where they will fall to my beloved Houston Astros in seven games! (I can't wait to see how the Boston crowd will receive Roger Clemens!)

A side note, Barb. Have you ever given a workshop or a speech here in the South? I often share some of your cultural insights with some of my fellow Catholics, and they find what you have to say quite interesting and thought provoking. What would it take to bring you down here for a talk?
