Greetings,

Thanks, Ed!  It's been an exhausting, exhilarating, cathartic experience 
for everyone in Red Sox Nation.  After they won, I made three phone calls: 
the first to my father, who took my to my first Red Sox game in 1976; the 
second to my brother, who swore off the Sox after 1986 but got sucked back 
in this year; and the third to my friend Joe, whom I've known since we were 
6, and who shared the agony of 1975 and 1978 with me.

When the Sox clinched a playoff birth, my 8-year-old Ben asked, "Dad, do 
you think the Red Sox will win the World Series this year?"  "Oh yes," I 
answered, "I think that every year."

Just wait 'til this year!

This will last a lifetime.  Thanks again!

Regards,
Erik
