i guess the angels didn't say enough prayers

my beloved bosox swept 'em

By Dan Shaughnessy, Globe Columnist

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Manny Ramírez's towering walkoff home run - if a baseball lands in the Charles River does it qualify as a "splash hit?" - and the Red Sox charter aircraft both returned to earth sometime Saturday morning and throughout Red Sox Nation it feels like 2004 all over again.

There have been a lot of good nights at Olde Fenway since the Sox vanquished the Yankees (and Cardinals, by the way) three years ago, but this is the first time it's felt like the golden days of October '04.
Curt Schilling, one of the seven holdovers from that championship season, gets the ball today in a potential clinch game against the Angels. The Sox are on the threshold of advancing to the American League Championship Series and the Franconamen appear locked and loaded - ready for anything the Indians, or Yankees, can throw at them in the next round.........
