God must know I need a break.
It's a long story, and I'll share it one day when it actually happens, but it looks like I'll be at Fenway Park 3 days from now, watching Josh Freaking Beckett hopefully clinch a 3 game sweep of the ALDS vs the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Since this all popped up last night around 7:30, I'm a little punch drunk and still not really sure it's gonna happen. But if it does, no matter where you reside, I can pretty much bet you'll hear my screams of joy when I finally know it's a done deal.
Between the late ending to the game and me laying in bed in awe over the fact I may, in fact, be in Boston in just a few days did not lend itself to a good nights sleep.
UPDATE: I'm in. Just got the plane reservation stuff worked out and I'll be landing in Boston about 12:30 Sunday morning. This is nuts; 24 hours ago I was wondering if I was going to be able to watch the game. Now? I'm gonna be AT the game.
I've got a lot of people to thank for this, and come next week I'll give out the honors.
Right now I'm pretty much hyperventilating over the fact I'm gonna be back in Boston less than 6 months after I went for the first time.
Life really does come at you fast.
I wonder if All-State needs another idea for a commercial.
