They told me and told me that you would break my heart. But tonight you proved them wrong.
Thank you for being so wonderful. Thank you for not disappointing me. Thank you for playing your hearts out, to the absolute best of your abilities, all season long. I am proud to be a member of Red Sox Nation.
And to those of you who have particularly captured my heart (Mikey, Youk, Bapelbop, Okie-Dokie, Dusty-P), I will miss you. I hope like hell that I’ll see you all back again next season, but if I don’t, it’s been great sharing this with you. I am proud of each and every one of you.
