Finally a W for the Red Sox to even the series 1-1.
This title is brought to you by the Boondock Saints: 2 brothers trying to rid beantown of evil. The movie had to have something to do with it. <The movie is set in Boston.. and one of the actors, Norman Reedus, is on the Walking Dead, which I was watching that night.>
I’ll admit. I did not watch this game, I was too busy doing Property Reading, and being down 5-1 with the future Cy Young Winner on the mound was doing nothing but putting me in a bad mood. My mom kept texting me, “don’t watch the game, do your homework, tonight is not our night, I’ll call you if anything good happens.” So she never called. I watched the season premier of AMC’s Walking Dead with my neighbor and Elon 1L Maddie, started reading about executory limitations and put sox on the back burner of my mind. Occasionally I’d glance at my phone to check the score only to see that another inning had passed… and I’d just toss the phone further out of reach across the carpet so I would refresh it strike by strike. So i was finishing my reading, it was late, I figured the game was almost over, I unlocked the screen only to see 5-5 tie, ORTIZ GRAND SLAM. I let out a scream reminiscent of my high school wrestling glory days, fist pumped Jersey Shore style and ran down to my apartment to turn the game on, just in the nick of time to see Salty at the plate, Prince being a terrible Fielder, and a wild pitch and a single by Iglasias, the Red Sox won! I might as well have started singing the National Anthem: JOSE can you seeeeeee, by the balls early flight, Ore the RED SOX have WON and I can sleep well tonight….. ect
Great feeling. Also, FYI, before this game..
The Patriots had won in the Last 10 seconds of the game with a Brady touchdown pass to Kenbrell Thompkins.
I was feeling pretty lousy also before the comeback, and earlier in the 4th Quarter I got a text asking if I wanted to go for a run. And I was like.. Nah I got a lot of property reading to do, go ahead, I will see you later…. then the magic happened.. then i texted them back saying: Have you guys left yet, I feel rejuvenated. During the run, I told them that this was a good luck run for the Red Sox. So ,in about an hour from now I will go on another good luck run to help us gain a 2-1 series lead.
Thought it was worthwhile to add a GIF of a closer look of Big Papi Magic
And the Flip:
Good Luck Tonight!

Good Luck Run Time!
