Staying focused

The Yankees seemed to come out of what's now being dubbed the 'Beantown brouhaha' on top - they remained concentrated on the game, didn't let their emotions get out of hand and hung on for a 4-3 victory at Fenway. I guess the win will take a little wind out of the Red Sox' sails - they were hot after taking Game 1 in Yankee Stadium, but now they're down 2-1 down in the ALCS. They're gonna need a healthy dose of that 'Cowboy Up!' spirit if they are to come back against the Evil Empire. May the force be with them...
