    15 years ago tonight. The entire balance of the universe was thrown irrevocably outta whack. The filthy Red Sox won the first of four games in a row, with the help of a ketchup packet stuffed into a sock, after being down three games to none to the heroic NY Yankees. Mariano Rivera was proven to be human after all, I never stopped hating Curt Schilling, and @Covemastah got a huge woody on this historical date.

    PS- the ketchup covered sock didn’t happen on this date, but needs to be mentioned nonetheless as Schilling is a huge dooshcanoe.

    The Sox just spotted the Yankees three games just to make it interesting, and then swept the rest.

    Deal with it.

    On October 18, 1867, the U.S. formally takes possession of Alaska after purchasing the territory from Russia for $7.2 million, or less than two cents an acre. The Alaska purchase comprised 586,412 square miles, about twice the size of Texas, and was championed by William Henry Seward, the enthusiastically expansionist secretary of state under President Andrew Johnson.
