Red Sox/Yankees

This ALCS game 7 tonight is the fight of the century – continued from last year’s ALCS game 7 – a heavy weight match between legendary adversaries, both of whom have already struggled mightily, and are barely standing. It’s going to get bloody. This is Red Sox/Yankees baseball, and it doesn’t get any better than this. The World Series is secondary – an anti-climax to an ALCS game 7 struggle between the Red Sox and Yankees that means everything to these two clubs, and probably to baseball nation across the country. Whatever the outcome tonight, both teams do each other great honor in this Herculean clash. This incredible game is not possible without both teams.

It may seem trite or sentimental to say that there will be no loser tonight, but it is true. These warriors have given everything they have in this amazing contest, and have been found worthy. The honor and glory each team derives is in proportion to the skill and effort of the other.

Thank you both. Go Sox!
