One year ago today, I woke up ecstatically happy. We had beaten the Yankees in seven games. It was so unbelievable.
It's amazing the effect that sports have on a city. I remember going shopping the day after we were massacred by the Yankees in Game 3. Everybody was dragging, grumpy, and rude--even more so than normal. After Game 7 and throughout the World Series, the whole city was so upbeat it was unreal. As A. Bartlett Giammatti said, "School will never start, rain will never come, sun will warm the back of your neck forever."
I'll reminisce about last year and post some of the things I wrote as the week goes on.
