Just now, the Red Sox have captured Major League Baseball's World Series Championship with their fourth straight win over the Colorado Rockies.
If the Rockies had won last night and managed to win tonight, they would be going back to Boston for Game 6.
The same Boston I and 9,000+ other conventioneers are in for the Von show.
But with the Red Sox sweep, we no longer will be faced with a city where every tv in most every restaurant is tuned to the Series, and barleybuzzed types drown out our business dinner conversations with pro-Sox war whoops.
We'll even be able to catch taxis!
Now if the attendees can find restaurants and bars where masked and buzzed out Halloween celebrants won't invade and spoil the mood.
