With the Red Sox and the Yankees engaged in yet another classic game (9-8 Red Sox, bottom of the 5th as I type this), I'm distracted, nervous, and have no idea what to post about tonight.
Earlier, I saw on SI.com a feature on great Sox/Yankee moments from the past, with the requisite shots of Ruth, Tek punching Arod, and Papi.
For me? Dave Freaking Roberts.
Now, as Julian has loaded the bases and the game is tied, still in the bottom of the 5th?
I'll be behind the sofa if you need me.
*UPDATE* It's now 11-9, Yankees. My ulcer? It's bleeding.
*Update #2: It's over. Yankers win 15-9. Yes, 15-9. Apparently Rudi Stein from the Bad News Bears wasn't available to make it worse. How do two of the best teams in the game have a 15-9 game? Beckett tomorrow; 10 to 1 he plunks somebody.
