With the Angels loss in game 1 of the ALDS against the Boston Red Sox, the Angels have their backs up against the proverbial wall. The Angels finished 31-21 in one-run games (club record 19-12 on road) and 30-7 in two-run contests (17-2 at home). Along with 9 walk-off wins, the Angels are a team that knows how to compete. Problem is for the Angels, it’s hard to compete against something you can’t see or control; The Boston Red Sox Curse! Fortunately the Angels have something that the Red Sox team is lacking: The Angels fans and the spirit of the Rally Monkey!

The current Angels teams has had its back against the wall this season and have managed to win the games that were considered "must win" games. This Angels team knows how to "rise" to the occasion. The Angels team in 2002 lost all of their first games in each round of that playoff season. This years team also has a lot of great character, and has the ability to match the 2002 teams results.

Now it's time for the current team to "Cowboy up"! Let’s hope the team can exceed the definition of "Cowboy up", get back on your horse, don't back down, never give up, and do your best with the hand you've been dealt. I really feel that this team has been dealt the right cards and can "go all the way"!

Now all we need to do is page Mr. Autry!
Love to hear what you think!
