This game has been a real snoozer … for some of us. Gabby zonked out ages ago and was carried to her bed with great success. Daniel has been to bed, and up again, and to bed, and up again, and back to bed. I think the screams of the fans keep waking him. Raphael fell asleep almost mid-sentence telling me that he was … not … tired. I carried him to bed where he woke up to tell me again that he was … not … tired. Two minutes with his Mama lying next to him, however, proved otherwise.
Now it is 12:50 am, I’ve got a living room full of enthralled children, the Red Sox are winning 10-5, and like any true fan, I am wondering: Can’t they just end this thing already? I am pretty sure Manuela is asleep.
