Even though the Rockies won, like, 200 straight games to get in the playoffs, then swept through their first two playoff series with seven straight wins, the World Series is basically over.  Only a bunch of times in history has a team rebounded from a 2-0 deficit, which the Rockies now face after losing last night in Fenway 2-1.  And certainly the Red Sox — a team with a long and storied history of playoff success — could never falter after opening up such an insurmountable lead.

Anyway, you can read all about Game 2 here.  Curt Schilling got the win with 5 and 1/3 innings pitched, so you can probably expect to see the word "gritty" located somewhere near his career playoff record and ERA. Other heroes were Mike Lowell (scored first run, drove in the other) and Hideki Okajima and Jonathan Papelbon, who closed down the Rox for the rest of the game with stellar performances out of the bullpen.

Finally, the most important news you can imagine: Jacoby Ellsbury stole a base in the fourth inning, so we all get a free taco from Taco Bell.  Details to follow!  OMG I can't wait!!!  It's almost as good as someone handing me 83 cents in loose change!
