Red Sox Magic Number - 76
With the Red Sox win and Yankees loss - the Red Sox magic number is now 76.
The atomic number of osmium is 76. Osmium is a member of the platinum family and is the densest natural element. The second densest natural element is sports talk radio discussions regarding the trade value of Roy Halliday.
The number 76 also happens to be the registry number of the U.S. Navy's nuclear aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76). We could sure use a guy like Ronald Reagan at the helm of the country today.
