I’m pleased to admit, here (the Internet) and now (approximately 7.55 pm, Wednesday, October 20), that I declared the ALCS “over” last Saturday, after the Yankees went up 3-0 in the series, having shellacked the Sox 19 to 8.
I’ll also admit, while I’m at it, that I declared, with heavy heart and gloomy outlook, the presidential race “over” in the weeks after the RNC, when Dubya was way, way up and Kerry just didn’t seem to be coming out to play.
The moral of the story? It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.
And I’m now thinking that Boston may be my kinda town. But I’m not predicting nothing.
