…which a friend shared. He sent it a while ago to a Red Sox fan friend:
“I’ll tell you what I told one of my neighbors at a bar last night as we
watched the Yankees defeat the Red Sox – – I with a huge smile on my face
and he dumbstruck and pouting.
`You guys gave as good as you got,’ I said to him as he seemed not to
breathe. `You tested us at every minute in a match-up that should make you
proud. You made us fight for this victory from beginning to end.
Congratulations.’ And then I shook his hand.
I meant it when I said it to him, and I mean it as I offer these sentiments
2004 is another year.”
