It's Almost October
I can't believe its almost fall again. I think fall is my favorite season. It cools down so I can wear cool jackets. It gets nice and crisp. It is perfect adventure weather. Best of all it is the time for playoff baseball. The Sox have pretty much got their playoff spot clinched. Now it is just a question of whether or not they will take the Division or the Wild Card. I think they can pass the Rays for the division. Hopefully they do because I would prefer to face the AL Central meatball in the first round to playing against the Angels.
I remember the last time I was in Cedar City for the fall. It was 2004. There were adventures aplenty, the presidential election was heated, and the Yankees were poised to go to the world series. Down 3-0, the Red Sox stormed back 4 games in a row to defeat the Yankees and went on to sweep the Cards for their first World Series Championship since 1918. It was the most amazing thing I have ever witnessed. I know its hard to understand unless you're a baseball fan, but i have never been so elated. Hopefully this upcoming fall will be equally interesting. Only sans the Yankees.
