I was against the wall by the arches down the left field line, could only get a SRO ticket. Too stunned or beaten down to cry.
This year was a tough one. The team picked a bad time to have a nasty losing streak. We damn near took the division over a team that had a Triple Crown batting champion, last year's Cy Young/MVP, and Prince Fielder. There's a reason that no one thought back in April that the Sox could do that (though I never thought we'd lose 90 or any of that nonsense). At the end, the planets re-aligned. It was fun while it lasted.
