Full Circle BoSox

A basement exercise in Red Sox nation.

Dave Roberts' midnight steal off Mariano Rivera in the 2004 ALCS signaled the beginning of the end of The Curse. As a Bostonian who grew up with the perennial hope and suffering of the Red Sox, I bonded with the rest of my city over the course of that long, historic series with the Yankees ten years ago. From a bar in Mexico I watched the Sox go on to win the World Series. They've won two more since, and no matter where I am when they do it, I'm home.
