Aside from not having to lose sleep nearly every night for the next week, there's one other good thing I've discovered to come out of the Sox valiant but just short effort to win the American League pennant and participate in another World Series.
It sits on a shelf in the beer & wine section at our own local supermarket, Big E. There's a whole stack of them actually, and as a result of the Sox now dusting off the golf clubs and not brushing back Phillies batters, you can get yourself one (or a few) for 3 bucks off. At $7.99, that about 6 bucks off the suggested retail from the official site. And proceeds go to the charity of the slugger's choice. What's not to like about that?
Hopefully not the taste of the wine. We'll have to get back to you on that one.
I opted for the Vintage Papi, a nice Merlot, Cabernet blend. Looking forward to pouring a glass and offering up a hearty 'we'll get 'em next year.' toast. Sleep or no sleep, it would have been cool to see our Sox in another Series, but they gave it a good go and provided some great playoff moments this year. Just can't quite figure out who to root for now. Maybe I'll just skip it and pick up a good book.
