I had to stay up last night to catch the end of the Red Sox's win over the Evil Empire on opening day...it was just too sweet to miss.
It started rough for Boston, with Josh Beckett giving up two home runs in the second inning, one each to Jorge Posada and Yanks newcomer Curtis Granderson. It got downright ugly by mid-game, with the Evil Empire extending their lead to 5-1.
But thanks to a miscue or two by the Yanks and some heroics from Pedroia and Youkilis, the good guys prevailed, 9-7. Nice way to start the season.
