The American League Championship series between Cleveland and Boston began on a Friday night. Early the next morning, after an IFR handoff to Boston Center, the pilot of a Boston-bound aircraft posed the all-important question:

Piper 123:
Sox win last night?

Boston Center:
Yeah!

Piper 123:
That's too bad.

[thoughtful pause]

Piper 123:
You're not going to make us hold now, are you?

Boston Center:
Probably not but just remember, I'm not paying for the gas!
