Here's to all of the parents who let their kids stay up late and watch the Red Sox win the World Series! And here's to all of those parents who made their kids go to school today, and bask in that indescribable mix between exhaution and exhileration, and wear their tired faces like a badge of honor as they grind through the day, eyes half open, mind foggy, limbs heavy, but filled with pride in themselves for sucking it up, and watching their team cruise to victory, and dragging themselves out of bed to be with their friends, and share the camradarie that shared experiences bring.
Kind of like a team winning a championship.
And here's to the Boston Red Sox for bringing it home!
Boston Strong indeed.
