Based on the week that the Pats had, I dressed the kiddos in their Patriots paraphernalia all day. I figured with Schilling on the mound the BoSox were pretty well set. The kids, especially Garrett, ran around all day yelling "Go, Go football!" and "Go, go, go baseball!" Too cute. Still trying to teach him to say "Pats" or "BoSox", although he did yell for Sox player J.D. Drew Saturday night. I guess it's a step in the right direction.
Of course, with the late start of both games, the kids conked out before long. Here are my little fans during the Patriots halftime:
The Patriots totally beat up the Chargers last night. See, in Football Town it does matter (Chris put on his team's jersey and the Broncos pulled out another win, this time in overtime).
That said, it matters in Baseball Town too, and this set of fans didn't do their part. Derek Jeter hit a three-run home run off of Schilling in the 8th. In the bottom of the 9th, with the Sox only down by 1, Big Papi (David Ortiz) hit a pop-up to end the inning. The Sox lost 4-3, meaning the Evil Empire are only 4.5 games back. Yeech. Come on Sox -- GO GO GO!!!
