*Pretty sure this picture is from Kelly. If I'm wrong, apologies all around.*
My co-worker John has an older brother who is a die-hard Yankee fan, and sometime back around the first of May I told him the Sox would be in first place by June 1st. Well, they actually beat me by a few days and of course I gleefully let him know that I was really sorry I missed my prediction but was in fact just a bit early.
On June 1st, the Yankees were back in the lead and I got a call that night that basically said "Ted, you were wrong about your &*($%^#()@*$ prediction!"
Today, he came in the store and I of course snuck up behind him and put my Sox cap on his head.
We laughed, shook hands, man hugged, and he uttered "They can't beat you *&^%#$!@#$%&S".
And this was BEFORE Papi went yard for the 15th time and the Sox took not only the first two games of the series but first place in the AL East as well.
The worm has turned and it's the aging Yankees pinning all their hopes on the Yokozuna-esqe CC Sabbathia tomorrow night against the revitalized Josh Beckett.
Honestly? I'll be happy to take two out of three in the Toilet, but if the boys can somehow sweep them AGAIN?
I've got a feeling it's gonna be a runaway in the AL East this year.
