What we saw

I'd love to be able to sit down and write a long piece on Boston's incredible win, but I have neither the time nor the energy right now. Instead, I'll point you in the direction of a bunch of people who all watched the same game, but through different eyes.

Take your pick of the views: the press box, the Boston press box, the sympathisers' press box, the Boston fans, even the view from the Bronx.

As has often been the case this season, I will leave the last word to Beth, whose view reflects the feeling deep inside Red Sox Nation. This was not just about a game, it was about redemption and how the present can finally reconcile us with the past.

What a great day, one of those that you wish would never end. It will end, but no matter - the record books will forever show that the Boston Red Sox were the 2004 World Series Champions. Whatever happens, we'll always have the memories of this incredible season - they can't take that away from us.
