On Oct. 30, the Red Sox clinched their third World Series win in a decade – and David Ortiz was there for all of them.

"I can't even describe that feeling … every time it's different but at the end of the day it's the same. You start getting goosebumps and butterflies in your stomach," the MVP, 38, tells PEOPLE. "Winning at home this time, I looked around and [realized] I'd never seen Fenway so crowded. It was an unbelievable experience."

After a lackluster previous season, the Red Sox hoped to come back stronger in 2013. But a week and a half after opening day, the Boston Marathon bombers struck the city.

Soulful music legend James Taylor could probably soothe plenty of folks simply by vocalizing the phone book.

But the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer got off to a bumpy public start Thursday night when he took on the national anthem while opening Game 2 of the World Series at Boston's Fenway Park.

Instead of launching into "The Star Spangled Banner," Taylor inadvertently started singing the lyrics to "America the Beautiful" before getting back on track and belting out the national anthem.

Jay-Z and Alicia Keys Rock Yankee Stadium

Originally posted 10/30/2009 08:15AM

The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies were supposed to be the main attraction Thursday night at Game 2 of the World Series. But Jay-Z and Alicia Keys turned the players into fans during a rocking pre-game performance of their hit song "Empire State of Mind."

Jay-Z prowled the outfield stage in a Yankees cap and varsity jacket, rapping his New York anthem, while Keys belted out the chorus, first while seated at her piano and then from center stage.

Cameras caught players from both dugouts bobbing their heads and enjoying the show, and the Yankees seemed unperturbed by Jay-Z's somewhat controversial lyric, "I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can."

DE-CURSED: Ben Affleck, rejoice. After an 86-year drought, the Boston Red Sox won the fourth game of the 2004 World Series against the outmatched St. Louis Cardinals to sweep the series 4-0 and become world champions for the first time since 1918. The win finally ends "The Curse of the Bambino," which has plagued the team ever since it sent Babe Ruth to the Yankees. Shaggy-haired Johnny Damon hit a lead-off home run to take an early lead Wednesday at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, and Derek Lowe pitched seven scoreless innings against the Cardinals. "This is for Boston. I love you guys," series MVP Manny Ramirez said. "We're just a bunch of idiots who go out there and have fun. I'm going to Disney World."
