I don't follow sports (except when my children play). Did something interesting happen?

Naah, not that interesting.

The neighborhood was deadly silent last night. At least I didn't have to worry about the kids being woken up.

It's to the credit of George Steinbrenner and the Yankees that they let Red Sox fans gather around 3rd base and celebrate for 40 minutes after the game.

Of course, the thing you have to remember about New York is it's traditionally been a National League city, and only the ineptitude of the Mets over the years has evened out the balance. So in terms of population there were probably as many Met fans in New York celebrating the Yanks' loss as there were Yankee fans commiserating (and the Yankee fans' enjoyment of the Sox' last World Series disaster was empered somewhat for the next decade by who it happened against, until they finally won their own Series title in 1996).
