Off-Day Classics: Game 7, 2003 ALCS, Red Sox at Yankees (The Aaron Boone Game)

Quick Programming Note -

Our Wednesday Night Classics will be called the OFF-DAY CLASSICS during the season. Rather than airing a video while a live game is being played, we will save the videos for days when the Yankees don’t play. This will give all fans a chance to watch some classic Yankees moments on a night when there otherwise isn’t Yankees baseball.

We will return to Wednesday nights at the conclusion of the season.

We’ll begin with their first championship era, 1921-1923.

To My Dad, The Life Long Red Sox Fan...

CONGRATULATIONS!

Teddy Ballgame is smiling down from Heaven on you and your beloved Red Sox.

It always hurts (a lot) to see the Yankees lose, especially to the Red Sox, but, I am glad for you. You suffered for a long time with the Sox and because you are a true fan, you always stayed loyal to your team. Enjoy this ride - the winning doesn’t ever happen enough.

It is good the Sox are winning in your 80th year. It’s a wonderful year-long birthday present.

And now that the Yankees are done, just for you, I’ll say “Go Red Sox!”
