To my Texas friends....
« on: October 13, 2021, 05:06:35 PM »
It appears that OUR NEW ENGLAND Red Sox will be playing some team from Texas for the AL Pennant.

I offer the friendly wager :

If the Astros win the series, I'll end my next 5 posts with : "ASTROS RULE  aWaRd , those boston red sox suck  :puke: "

If the Red Sox should win, you would close yours with the teams reversed.

ANY TAKERS  :).

FYI, records were set in both the Sox-Astros game and the Cowboy-Patriot game.

You probably heard the two grand slams by the same team in a post-season game was a record.
 tiphat: tiphat:

BUT, you may not have heard the Patriot QB set a record by throwing two consecutive TD  ^good ^good passes on two consecutive countable plays  :o :o. Of course, the TD passes were to different teams ???.

I can only hope the Astros visit to Fenway will provide the same excitement as the Cowboy visit to New England....ONLY WITH A DIFFERENT OUTCOME  aWaRd !

A word of warning, the beauty of Yogi's sage advice offers BOTH; a glimpse of "hope" for those who might lose faith, too early, as well as "caution" for those who tend to assume victory prematurely.

I'm sure the Astros have came from 2-1 down to win a series before, and I'm far from counting them out. As I recall the Red Sox were once down 3-0 and ,yet, came back to win the series... :) ;) :D ;D :o 8] ::) :bOW :!# cRaZy

It's now best of three, with a visit back to the Lone Star State. It's too bad  :'( that MLB games weren't like NFHS and only went seven innings  :) !
