Speaking of Mythic Grandeur
I’m not even that much of a baseball fan, but if you’re not into this you have no soul: Down three games to zip in the American League championship, the Red Sox rallied back against the Yankees, and now the series is tied.
The final game is tonight.
This would be amazing no matter which teams it involved. But Red Sox vs. Yankees is extra-epic because of the Curse of the Bambino.
Also, Sox pitcher Curt Schilling was bleeding at the ankle as he pitched Game 6.
Everybody knows blood gives you +10 mythic points.
So come, join the West as we marvel to Game 7 at 8 p.m. EST. Bask in the drama over at Diary of a Red Sox Fan. This is straight-up elves vs. orcs.
