Red Sox Magic Number - 62
With a Boston victory and the Yankees loss - the Red Sox magic number is now 62.
Sigmund Freud had an irrational fear of the number 62. My wife has an irrational fear of snakes. I have an irrational fear of locking the keys in the car. Some people suffer from ablutophobia which is the fear of washing or bathing (these people tend to be Yankee fans). FDR said the only thing we have to fear is fear itself. When my kids were young I used to change the radio whenever the song The Macarena came on and I would tell them I did so because the song scared me because I had dreams of strange people jumping out of the closet shaking maracas and singing The Macarena (in reality I just didn't like the song).
