Boston's Duck Dynasty — oh I'm sorry — I mean the Boston Red Sox, with the 38 year old David Ortiz, who had a grand slam stolen from him with a sweet right field snag over the low wall by the Cardinals Carlos Beltran (who got hurt), smacked a two run homer for good measure in a later inning and most of us were finding game one of the World Series nearly boring.
Ace Jon Lester pitched well for Boston for most of the game.
The field umpires at least came together and reversed a very poor call at second base early in the game. Never saw that before.
It didn't rain, 48 degrees.
The military-might shown in the audience, representing two failed wars for America for goodness sakes! seems a bit creepy during America's favorite pastime. Or is it? It seems they have grown into both America's favorite pastime.
Boston players and fans are very happy and they should be.
There's a ways to go.
