Time to go home

For the second time in a week, the Red Sox rallied for two runs in the ninth, only to lose the game in the bottom of the inning. I'm sure Kevin Millar spoke for the whole team when he said: "Get us back to Sox Nation."

Well, they'll be there tonight, for the home opener against the Yankees, and although all of Red Sox Nation will be hoping they can bounce back tonight from an inauspicious 2-4 start to the season, most of the focus will be on the pregame ceremonies, where we'll get to see something that many have waited a lifetime for: the Sox being presented with their World Series rings.

If you're any kind of a Red Sox fan, make sure you put a sweater on, because there are going to be chills in the air.
