A Yankees Classic If I Ever Saw One

Only rivaled by no hitters and perfect games.

I mean, come on now. It’s hard for games to get any more tense, any more epic, any more meaningful, any more crazy for God’s sake. It was just one of the more unbelievable games of the year, it has to be. An unbelievable pitching duel, great defense, near endings, and then A-Rod comes up, without a homer in a long time, and what does he do?

Well, all he does is send Junichi Tazawa’s breaking ball into the left center field stands, ending the game in the 15th inning of play. That’s just a hell of a thing. You don’t see great games like that every day.

And the importance of that game cannot be doubted, either. This was perhaps the Red Sox’s most important game of the year, as coming in they were 3.5 games out of first place and they had the Texas Rangers on their back, on their trail. They desperately needed this win, and they didn’t get it. Now they have put themselves in a really difficult situation, 4.5 games out of first place in the AL East and only 1 game separates them from the Texas Rangers in the AL Wild Card.

Don’t you just love it that the Red Sox are in a difficult situation? Gooo Rangers!

The Song of the Day is A Tribe Called Quest’s 1989 hip hop hit Can I Kick It? It’s mad funky.

Stay positive, Yankee fans.

    EJ: I don’t know if I should call you EJ, with all the random closing names you come up with 🙂 Last night is definetely a Yankee’s Classic. I watched the whole game, and it was SOOO exciting. Many times, I found myself covering my eyes, cuz it was too scary to watch, and yet I wanted to watch anyway. I hope CC gives us length today. The bullpen needs a breather. They are on FOX today. Darn. I hate Tim McCarver and the other boneheads they have for announcers on that channel. Oh well. -Virginia

    Big Daddeh: I didn’t dream about Arod. Before he hit the homer, I said something like, “I’ll do ANYTHING for you if you win this game for us!” Then when he did, I was like, “Yes! Oh, Arod, I LOVE you, you sexy machine!” Then I thought about what Arod would do after the game. It was late, he must have been tired, but Arod probably wanted to go out and party. I don’t care what he does. As long as he can come through in the clutch!
