I cannot say that I was much of a fan of the Devil Rays when they were in St. Petersburg with that name while I lived in Palm Harbor, FL., from 1996 through 2005 but now that they are the Rays AND winning--- Go Rays!!!!

As a lifelong RedSox fan (through all the REALLY bad days...) I'm pleased with their success these last few years.

However, the Rays are just such a great story of teamwork and positive motivation. I've seen them through really pitiful times since they came into the league, and it's great to see them WAY ABOVE the Yankees (whom the RedSox are above, also), so it's a win-win!

Red Sox are a fine team, and I like 'em. However, it's time for someone else to have a little fun too (still waving my Cubs/White Sox pennants)

Default Go Rays!!

Next to the Yankees, the Rays are my favorite team.

They are doing a bang-up job of whipping up on my nemesis Red Sox at this very minute!!

Angry Painful game last night for a newbie Rays fan.

That was an exciting game last night but very frustrated for a late comer to the Rays' fan base.

The positive was it was an ego-deflater, and the Rays may have needed that, especially after scoring the first 7 runs.

Big Game James at the Trop versus Beckett - should be interesting....

I am sure there will be a whole lot more Rays flags and the like here in TV now that they are in the World Series.

Saw a neighbor's house with both an Indianapolis Colts and a Green Bay Packers flag up yesterday. I can just picture a couple shouting in one another's ear as the Indianapolis-Greenbay football game progressed yesterday.

Must have some of the same situations this week with the number of people from PA here in the Villages who also feel obliged to root for the team from about 120 miles away in St. Petersburg.

From this Red Sox fan's point of view: The Rays kicked our butts. They have a more complete team and I'm very happy that they made it. It was kind of a no lose from my perspective: my current team vs. my future team.

GO RAYS!!!!
