No one understands the pain of being a Red Sox fan quite like the Sports Guy, Bill Simmons, formerly the "Boston Sports Guy" before he moved to ESPN Page 2. He'll be keeping minute-by-minute diaries of each of the ALCS games (though they aren't available minute-by-minute, they're available on ESPN.com the next day. Probably to edit out all the swearing).

There's always something in his columns that cracks me up. Usually a old t.v. or movie reference, or an old-school baseball reference (this column: Kenny Lofton playing for the Birmingham Black Barons in 1938). Also there's always something that pisses me off (this column: stupid gambling similies).

Always worth a read. Let's hope the Sox can pull it together behind Pedro tonight. ben
