James Taylor performed the National Anthem before last night's opening game of the World Series.

James recently recalled the Red Sox shocking 2004 playoff series win over the arch rival Yankees:
"Being a Boston, a Red Sox fan, we were three down needing to win four in a row against the New York Yankees. We knew it wasn't going to happen. And then somehow, miraculously, one game and then, by the skin of our teeth, a second game and then a third game, miraculously. Curt Schilling with the bloody sock. Over and over again, these impossible victories. When it finally happened, people just ran into the streets. It was really, such an event."
