Red Sox Win!

Well the Boston Red Sox live to play baseball one more day. Last night ALCS game was very exiting with moments of pure drama. This afternoon's game is sure to be as exciting as well.

There were many loyal Red Sox fans that slept on the cold pavement on Yawkey Way waiting for the Red Sox to release some no show tickets to the game, only to be disappointed that there were no tickets available.

This afternoons game will be played at the same time as the football moves into Week 5 and the New England Patriots battle against the Tennessee?Titans in Foxborough. I suspect that the Red Sox game will get higher TV ratings.

Golf at Stow Acres

I was very disapointed that the Red Sox lost both games 1 and 2 of the wild card games. I stayed up til 2:11 this morning to watch Byung Hyun Kim blow a 2 run lead in the ninth in game one.

Golf at Stow Acres
I play 18 holes of golf at the south course at Stow Acres. It costs $42 to play 18 holes and $30 for the golf cart. In a couple of weeks it will be great time to play golf in Stow. The colors of fall will be evident at every hole.

The seventh hole on the south course will be great photo opportunity in a couple of weeks. The combination of the large red barn, green grass and the various mix of fall colors in the background will make it the perfect photo scene.

Red Sox Baseball

There's a lot of talk in the local media complaining about the times of the first two games of the playoffs in Oakland. Tonight's game is at 10pm EST and tomorrow's game starts at 4pm EST. The schedule was created by ESPN and Fox as the national media wants the Yankees to be in Primetime.

The weather is getting cooler in New England and I'll probably take out my air conditioner sometime today. In a few days most of New England will have its first frost.

This is a great time of the year to be on Cape Cod. Many local resturants will still be open through the Columbus Day weekend. Its a great time to go for a stroll on the cool beaches. The color of the trees don't change until later in the month. If you play golf, October is great time to play on the Cape!

Red Sox Clinch Playoff Spot

Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox on clinching a wild card spot! David Lowe did a great job on controling the Orioles tonight!

Post season tickets went on sale last Friday and it took less than 2 hours to sell out the 9,000 tickets per game for the Wild Card games that will be held in Fenway. Oddly enough the Green Monster tickets haven't gone on sale yet. I suspect that they will be the most expensive tickets available, or that they will be promos for radio shows.

The new magic number for the Red Sox is 11. That's the number of wins that they need to accomplish to be the 2003 World Champions.
