Play Ball continued

I figured we had to wait three weeks for the conclusion, you could wait one day for the conclusion of the story...hehehe...

The game was called due to rain, make up game to be announced later. Well, later turned out to be at noon on Labor Day. Yeah, like NOBODY I know does anything on Labor Day...NOT! So I cleared my schedule, because just about nothing is more important than a Sox game!

Got up at 8AM on a holiday, UGH! Supposed to be able to sleep late on a holiday. OH! Wait a minute, GOIN' TO A SOX GAME! Jumped out of bed, dressed in my game day gear...Sox jersey, Jean shorts, 2004 World Series Chamos cap, Red Sox earrings (yes, of course I own some!) and as always, my Sox Champion pendant. Drove to my sister's to pick up her and her hubby, and we were off to the fens!

The day was glorious. Temp mid 70's, bright sunshine, not a cloud in the sky. The exact opposite of the first gameday. Schil was on the mound, while CWS sent a rookie out to pitch against the most potent offense in the game. My hopes were high!

Nine innings later, the only thing I could take out of the game was my beloveds did not get shut out. They were until the bottom of the ninth, when with two outs, a CWS error opened the gates. Two batters later, our new 2nd baseman hit a 3 run homer. Sox ended up losing 5-3.

Oh well, I still love them!
