I was all set to do a dissertation on yesterdays game, where the Yankees, " Trotted out starting 9 in opening preview, " per the Daily News headline, when El Duque pre-empted me.
I will say one thing. I was overcome with ennui.
It was painful to watch. I felt as though someone was adding layers of cement bags to my chest, with each pitch.
Other than Nathan's collapse at the end of 5 innings ( just like last year ), there was nothing to watch.
I seriously don't even remember if anyone got a hit, scored a run, or made a play.
It was like my eyes froze and my brain went blank.
I have since finished half a bottle of Crater Lake Vodka.
I feel better now.
