It's the bottom of the ninth inning of game four of the World Series. Boston is leading 3-0 in the game and 3-0 in the series. They only need three outs. And like every Red Sox fan across the world (since they keep showing clips of fans in Baghdad), I'm on the edge of my seat, waiting for the Red Sox to screw up. Although at least if they do, they still have three more chances.

First out. I'm sitting on IM with oidhche and daernhelm, who are griping about the clips of the historic Red Sox screwups. We've spent rather a lot of the last couple weeks watching the games together, including Saturday night while gaming, where we were all in the same place but watching the game on a computer.

Second out. The phrase "They're one out away" is ominous. There are so many things that can go wrong.

But that's the third out and we won the World Series!

You know, I almost feel like going out and rioting a little myself.
