Milton Should Have Been a Baseball Fan

The forces of evil and the forces of good met again in an epic clash this evening. Titantic warriors strode forth to the verdant plain of battle; their weapons, seemingly crude implements made of wood and leather.

At least tonight, the forces of good prevailed, 3-1, behind the pitching of Pedro.

There's nothing quite like the Red Sox and the Yankees squaring off. It's the greatest rivalry (not arguably the greatest, it is the greatest) in all of sports, in any sport, at any level. Sure, there are lots of great sports rivalries--Ohio State/Michigan; Celtics/Lakers; Redskins/Cowboys; Man U/the rest of the English Premier League--but there's nothing quite like Red Sox/Yankees. It really is as good as it gets.
