NY Times' Tyler Kepner:

"It was actually happening. The nerd was kissing the homecoming queen. Paper was beating scissors; scissors was beating rock. Charlie Brown was kicking the football. The Red Sox were beating the Yankees for the American League pennant."

Just a reminder: The Sox were on death's door against the Angels in 1986 when they rallied and won the pennant. Everyone remembers what happened later in the Series against the Mets. They may have erased the curse of the Babe, but the Buckner curse still hovers.
