Red Sox watch
Well, the Red Sox really brought the crazy in game 5. I was still in New Orleans Thursday night, and was out to dinner with a couple of colleagues so I missed the first six innings. But I was getting the updates on my BlackBerry and figured I wasn't missing much. A couple guys from our Boston office texted me to tell me which bar they were watching the game at, so after dinner I figured we'd join them and I could drown my sorrows with them. The score was 5-0 Tampa Bay when we got there, and Tampa quickly added two more runs in the 7th.
When Boston finally scored one to salvage a bit of pride, one of my Boston colleagues said he'd streak down Bourbon Street if Boston won. We held him to it, but we allowed him his boxer shorts to spare him the attention of New Orleans's finest.
