Ohh I love this Party!

The Sox clinched a playoff birth and the Rays spilt their double header against the O's so it looks like its time to get ready for the Halos. Can't say it was a great victory, but Wake and the Sox did just enough to win. Some great plays to preserve a one run lead by Jacoby and especially Cora to save a liner up the middle from bringing in the potential tying run. Paps came in for an important bases loaded third out in the 8th and in the 9th took it to another level going upstairs to to fan two and get the final pop out to seal the win. Mild chaos ensued. Not quite the party of 2007, but the Sox certainly know how to celebrate these things. Papi was the first to don the goggles and the beer flowed like wine.
Some Observations & Highlights from the celebration:
  • MDC, Lopez, and Aardsma dousing the fat cop who guards the Sox bullpen. Not sure what his name is but he always fist pounds Paps in big games. Great to see the team chemistry goes further than just the players and coaches.
  • MDC has the cutest baby daughter. Coco Crisp has the cutest wife.
  • Paps taking third, second, and first and handing them out to the Fenway Faithful.
  • Lowell and Veritek personally thanking the fans. True Veterans.
  • Katherine Tappen not being she Tek's home wrecker, because no one touched her. Tek must have called off the dogs
  • Paps interview with Heidi Whatney while he was puffing a stoggey and blowing smoke right into her face. Heidi was doused from head to toe therefore I take her out of the Tek scandal running.
  • You gotta love the Mayor!
  • The Indians disappearing seconds after the last out. Man they must hate the Sox.
  • Theo Is the Man. I hate Larry Luchino.
  • Woooooooooooo! Diamonds are forever...So is Elbladado!?(no idea what this was referring to.) Was his kid all hopped up on Mountain Dew or what?
  • The dousing of the coach who looks like an alien. Forget his name. It wasn't Demarlo?
  • New nicknames for Masterson "Lurch"! Youk "Uncle Fester"!

Gotta love playoff baseball. Hopefully this team can put it together.
