How do you stay enthusiastic after three big losses in a row? I can't. What do I conclude? The Red Sox play better baseball.
It's hard to call the Rockies 21 game winning streak a fluke. Maybe they just choked with the national attention and hoopla over their getting to the series at all. Woody Paige in the Denver Post writes:
What are you going to do? The rest of the country is amused. We must laugh, too....And the really good news: We still live in Colorado.
The game is only in the 5th inning and the Rockies could win tonight. But that might just prolong the agony. On the other hand, there's something to be said for positive thinking.

Bump and Update: The Rockies win. The crowd's screaming. The team is going crazy. The Diamondbacks are just staring. There's fireworks, I can see and hear them from my terrace a few miles away.
It's the Purple Reign. Congratulations, Rockies!
The floodgates just opened in the 4th inning. It's 6 to 1 and if the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight, they go to the World Series.
The crowd is wild. The Diamondbacks' manager looks totally defeated. The game is being broadcast on TBS. Even for a non-sports fan like me, it's very exciting. Tune in if you get a chance.
