The power of the Lucky Tablecloth has been demonstrated once again! The three years when we have remembered to place it on the kitchen table before the first game of the playoffs have all resulted in Red Sox championships. The three times we failed to get in on in time (2005, 2008, 2009) the Sox were eliminated. It is possible that the performance of the Red Sox players may also have been a contributing factor. All credit goes to Mrs THC who was inspired to purchase the tablecloth and ensure its placement in exactly the right spot in our home. Here is how it looked this morning:
Now it must be carefully cleansed (which cannot happen during the playoffs), folded and stored in a secure location. Oh, and our new puppy which we are getting in two weeks will be named Koji.
From Fenway last night. We made it through the traffic jams and were in Row 41 (of 49) in the right field bleachers. Great crowd and atmosphere. Lots of singing starting off with the Dropkick Murphys singing the National Anthem sounding like four guys in a Boston bar and then performing I'm Shipping Up To Boston. I'll upload some videos when I have more time.
