Needed: One more Cowboy Up moment

A couple of weeks ago, before the playoffs started, I talked to Nashville-based singer/song writer Ryan Reynolds for a story on him and his mother who were invited to take part in Boston's Rally Monday celebration.

Reynolds is the man behind the song "Cowboy Up," which became the Red Sox motto in 2003. Something he said during the interview has stuck with me. I wasn't able to work it into the story so here goes.

In talking about the Red Sox, Reynolds said he really began following the team after 2003. He also said the 2004 Red Sox produced "the ultimate Cowboy Up."

In case you're wondering the "ultimate Cowboy Up" would be "getting thrown down, having your heart stomped on, breaking every bone in your body, and getting up and doing it again."

Now, staring down elimination and a potential Cy Young winner in Cleveland's C.C. Sabathia, the Red Sox are in need of another "Cowboy Up" moment.

Boston has shown that they can Cowboy Up. You certainly can't count them out 'til the fat lady sings.
