Rays fans are thinking positive



   The home team is down one game in the World Series, but Tampa Bay Rays fans have seen so many comebacks from their team this year that they're staying optimistic.

   "I'm excited because it's been happening to the Rays all year," said Ken Lopez, 31, of Tampa. "They need that first loss and then all of a sudden they get the jitters out of their system."

   "It's like Boston all over again," said Jomar Rodriguez, 26, a truck driver from Tampa. The Rays beat the Boston Red Sox in seven games for the American League championship, after losing the first game in the series.

   Rays fans just gave their team an enormous cheer, and now the game has begun.
