Awesome for Boston!

Oh I am so so so HAPPY for Boston!!
Those boys gave all they had, every bat, every catch, they wanted this so bad for Boston and to prove to the world they were not just a bunch of bearded misfits! From worst to first, they did it!!
Yes! They were walking on air!
I cried happy tears last night as I am sure much of Boston did!!
I was watching the pre game interviews each night
and got to know a little of the men behind the beards.
Gomes, Pedroia, I already know about Napoli.
Gomes suffered a heart attack in 2002, only to come back and become "The Grinder" for his style of play!
Pedroia was told he was to short (he is 5'7) by a scout early in his start, guess that scout had no idea dynamite comes in small packages, what a bunch of amazing catches he made during the series, oh, and he took a huge pay cut just to stay with Boston, because he says  "it is not about the money, it is all about getting to play baseball in a town you love and that loves you!!
And Victorino and Big Papi! What a great group of guys that play hard and give even harder of themselves, together they created a team that surely will go down in the history books not just for winning the world series in 2013 but for being who they are and what they stand for!
BOSTON STRONG!!!
