Long nights

The Red Sox (and, therefore, me) have had some busy, long days. The Sunday game against the Yankees was a typical marathon - almost 4 hours. Fortunately, we held on for the win! And last night's game in Cleveland (also nearly 4 hours) was a fantastic come-from-behind-win. Okay, most of the game was very long and at time, unendurable. Lester pitched himself into a bind at one point - bases loaded, one out. So Tito went to the bullpen for - Julian Tavarez. Say what you want about whether the guy is sane, but he was awesome last night. Got two strike outs in that bases loaded situation, keeping the game in reach. In reach for the offense - which came to life in the last two innings. Youkilis had a homerun in the 8th, and Manny's 2-run homer in the 9th put us ahead 6-4 - and we never looked back. Yeah Red Sox!

I'm not into the hockey thing anymore (went thru a hockey phase in my college years, but you're supposed to dabble in crazy things during those years!). But I have to admit that I love this NESN commercial for the Bruins:

Beth, I know what you mean about the long games. So far I've been able to stay up for all of them so far, but it's tough!
