So, there are 11 stations within Vermont, 6 stations just outside Vermont's borders (NY, MA, or NH), and 2 50k watt stations (1080 Hartford and 660 New York) blanketing the state that are broadcasting tonight's Red Sox/Yankee game in the Green Mountain State.  That's almost a station per resident  ;).

I think that tonight would be the perfect night for Big Papi to hit that one home run he needs to pass the immortal Mickey Mantle on the all time home run list....GO SOX!

Two words "Bucky Dent".    I think Jeter played more games in the Fenway infield than Papi, they should hold his retirement ceremony in the dug out.

2340z WVMT 620am (Burlington, VT) Excellent reception - Ellsbury flies out to right center to end top second inning.  5k watt station, 250+ miles away.

The 2004 American League Championship Series was the Major League Baseball playoff series to decide the American League champion for the 2004 season. It was played between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, at Fenway Park and the original Yankee Stadium, from October 12 to 20, 2004. The Red Sox became the first, and still only, team in MLB history to lose the first three games and win the next four to win a seven-game series. The Red Sox, who had won the AL wild card, defeated the Anaheim Angels in the American League Division Series to reach the ALCS, while the Yankees, who had won the AL East with the best record in the AL, defeated the Minnesota Twins.
In Game 1, Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina pitched a perfect game through six innings, while the Red Sox recovered from an eight-run deficit to close within one run before the Yankees eventually won.[1] A home run by John Olerud helped the Yankees win Game 2. The Yankees gathered 22 hits in Game 3 on their way to an easy win.[2] The Yankees led Game 4 by one run in the ninth inning, but a steal of second base by Red Sox base runner Dave Roberts and a single by Bill Mueller off Yankees closer Mariano Rivera tied the game.[3] A home run by David Ortiz then won it for the Red Sox in extra innings. Ortiz also won Game 5 with a single in the fourteenth inning. Curt Schilling pitched seven innings in Game 6 for the Red Sox, during which time his sock became soaked in blood.[4] Game 7 featured the Red Sox paying back New York for their Game 3 blowout with a dominating performance on the road, anchored by Derek Lowe and bolstered by two Johnny Damon home runs, one a grand slam. David Ortiz was named the Most Valuable Player of the series.[5]

I'm impressed by your baseball acumen, JoeFLIPS - but after nearly a century of heartache, it is understandable why these memories are burned into your soul.  Alas, the the Yankees have won far too many Championships for me to remember in such exacting detail.   ;)

At least Joe Flips was nice enough to leave out my favorite moment from the 2004 ALCS, A-rod knocking the ball out of the first baseman's hand in a futile attempt not to be called out. And the attendant irony, given that he was going to be traded from Texas to Boston before he ended up going to the Bronx.  ;D

Oh of course we can joke about it...my 40 year buddy from UVM has "Sox #1" on his Vermont License plate.  I had a very painful drive home from Hanover, NH on the Sunday of the collapse.  I was visiting my then frosh son for the weekend after seeing the Big Green lose to Holy Cross on Saturday.  My drive home (3 hours) aligned with Game 4 - ugh!  As you said, all in good fun!  Baseball got me into radio.
