It’s a good thing I don’t have to work today since I couldn’t get any sleep after what the Red Sox & Patriots did last night. Unbelievably surreal.
- There are no words. Only emotions that we all still have from what transpired last night. Down, but never out, the Red Sox found a way. (Red Sox knot series with incredible turnaround, walkoff win)
- When he’s on the big stage, the rest of the Red Sox can only watch and admire the greatness that is David Ortiz in the postseason. (Red Sox marvel at the amazing David Ortiz)
- Lest we forget: While Ortiz did most of the heavy lifting, it was Jarrod Saltalamacchia who pushed the winning run across in the bottom of the ninth. (Saltalamacchia fights for game-winning hit)
- On the other side of things, the Detroit Tigers bullpen was performing in the worst way. The four-run lead couldn’t hold up after a late-inning meltdown. (Tigers bullpen fails starter in 6-5 Boston win)
- Torii Hunter has been in baseball for a long, long time. He knows how dangerous it is to challenge Big Papi, and wasn’t happy when the Tigers did so. (Tigers Learned Not To Touch The Hot Stove That Is David Ortiz)
- It was one heck of a day for sports in New England. Tom Brady & David Ortiz brought us back to the good ole’ days of 2004. (That’s a legendary Sunday)
- You want to see how far gone both games were before the impossible happened? Of course you do. (The Day in Boston, Graphed)
Dave O’Brien’s call is one for the ages.
