Growing up with a Bostonian as a father - and one who grew up a short walk from Fenway Park no less - I was always taught that there is only one thing you can count on in life: that the Red Sox will blow it in the end. Recently this has not been true, they won two World Series in 2004 and 2007. And while this delighted my long-suffering dad, it was clear that it was also slightly unsettling, as if the sun suddenly started rising in the west.
So it is with great relief that I note that the Red Sox have finally restored order to the universe with a late-season collapse to eclipse all others. It is as if that are atoning for the sins of '04 and '07.
And this morning I noted with some satisfaction that the sun again rose in the east. Phew...that was close.
