Ringing In a New Season

Interesting blurb in Peter Gammon's latest column.

Lowe's teammate in Boston, Mike Myers, says he has an off day and is flying in to Boston for the ring ceremony at Fenway Park. "I'm really excited about being there. I will never forget that parade. People holding up pictures of their dead parents and grandparents and yelling, 'thank you.' I had tears in my eyes. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience." Informed about Myers' decision, Lowe said, "I have the day off, and I want to be there so badly I may fly in from L.A. for the ceremony and fly back. To be there when those rings are handed out would be unbelievable."

I hope they both can make it. I'll never forget Myers coming on to strike out Matsui in game 5. Such an important out. But in some ways, DLo *was* the postseason for me. Man. Three wins in each of the three clinching games. Pitching in two elimination games against the Yankees. Pitching on *two days rest*. I don't know if I'll ever see a post season pitching accomplishment like that in a long long time. I hope the Sox and the Dodgers find a way to make it happen. I'd love to see DLo get his ring in front of a Boston crowd in Fenway park.

In fact. I hope they can get as many of the 04 Sox there for it as they can. I know a lot of them will be playing games for their own teams. But those who are retired, like Burks and Leskanic? Get them there. Pawtucket and Portland are close. Get people like Abe Alverez there. Anybody still unsigned? Ship them in. Can we borrow Gabe from Japan for a day?

Opening Day.
I can't wait.
