Memories of the World Series

I followed the Red Sox closely while writing Melly Mockingbird, and I had the great good luck to get interested in the team just a year or two before they won their first World Series in 86 years. Here is my post from LiveJournal after that win. Believe me, this past Wednesday night was nothing in comparison.


Thursday morning, October 28th, 2004, at 2:00 AM.

80 police officers in riot gear, marching in formation
12 police officers in riot helmets, carrying three-foot nightsticks
8 police officers on horses
15 police officers on bicycles
20 police officers on motorcycles
2 K-9 officers with dogs
1 police helicopter
1 armored vehicle

and . . .

ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
GO RED SOX!
