Right back where we started from

Oh I am going to get SO MUCH shit from my grandmother.

But for tonight, we're just going to celebrate our second straight ALCS berth and sing a few bars of "O, Canada" in honor of Jason Bay, who, were they to award an ALDS MVP, would surely be in contention along with Jon Lester.

Not gonna lie. Did not expect this. But I will take it. Turns out wins with house money are just as sweet.

And the quote of the evening thus far goes to Tom Caron in re: the irrepressible Jonathan Papelbon. "That guy would celebrate a win in April like this if they'd put the plastic on the lockers."
