Seven Up

Thomas Boswell in today's Washington Post:
—This time […] the weight of baseball history may finally be reversed. After all, it is the Yankees, not the "cursed" Red Sox, who have a chance for the worst October collapse in history.

When Aaron Boone hit that home run to win game 7 of last year's ALCS, I literally became catatonic.

God knows what condition I'll be in tonight at the conclusion of what Peter Gammons calls "the most anticipated game in the history of baseball."

Win one for baseball history, boys.
