Theme Day: Heights
How 'bout them Sox?
Well, if it's the first of the month, then it must be Theme Day across the citydailyphotoblog (cdpb) community.
Where do I go with Heights? Until last night, I had a few possibilities, with most of them centering around looking up to the tops of buildings. But at 11:22 PM last night, everything changed. For the better, I might add. The Boston Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in the sixth game of the 2013 World Series and took the baseball classic 4 games to 2. Amazing, all through my formative years the team always seemed to be at the bottom of the pile. Nights in my stifling, hot bedroom I'd listen to them suffer through 9 innings and lose, lose, lose. I got used to it. I never expected them, in my lifetime, to win anything. But in 2004 all that changed. It happened again in 2007 and now again this October.
What's happening here?
Three championships in the last 10 years?
I don't want to be greedy, but this is feeling is quite WONDERFUL!
Reaching new HEIGHTS today!
My Red Sox are 2013 World Series Champs!

"Don't you worry....... 'bout a thing.......cuz.............everything's.......gonna be alright!ReplyDelete
I heard about this. Something about people wearing red sox winning something. Sounds kinda crazy to me. And biased! I mean, really, what about people wearing green sox or brown sox or blue sox or just plain black sox.. Sheesh!ReplyDelete
Great choice Birdman! Red Sox lovers are walking on air.ReplyDelete
guess you've found your own heightsReplyDelete
Congratulations. Since I am a Cubs fan I know a few things about being a gracious loser. Hey, it's all good, it's baseball !ReplyDelete
You're talking Mandarin to me but I like your take on the theme!ReplyDelete
I thought there for a minute you were talking about the Washington Nationals. :-)ReplyDelete
The Red Sox showed some power in dispatching the Cardinals. Know just how you feel about your team losing as I'm a Cubs fan. They never win, especially with the Cardinals. BTW, my fermentation vat shots were taken at Granite City Brewery. They make a fine porter. Show up and I'll buy you one.ReplyDelete
Wait until next year!ReplyDelete

All right, enough already. Remember, what goes up must come down.ReplyDelete
That is awesome!ReplyDelete
Interesting contribution to the theme day. Have a good weekend!ReplyDelete
Celebrating to the full, I see. Don't blame you :).ReplyDelete
In the old days, "Red Sox fan" was always just part of the longer phrase, "long-suffering Red Sox fan." It was exciting to see them win this year, leading pretty much all the way. Dynasty? I think that goes too far. Let's just savor this one. Next year is a brand new year.ReplyDelete
ha! Brilliant take on the theme Birdman..not so sure Bob will think so :))))ReplyDelete
