Because I'm a lame-o and I can't stay awake -- ever -- I fell asleep during last night's game.
I woke up this morning and my girlfriend, who isn't a baseball fan, said "The Yankees scored 5 runs in the 9th inning!" She couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe it.
I logged in to my emails and received this photo from a friend who was at the game:
I'll share the words from his email because they're classic and they illustrate what it means to be a Yankee fan:
The photo was taken during Big Papi's last at bat of an 0 for 4 night. It was an epic walk-off granny from Tex.
The shitty weather ran off a lot of disgruntled Yankee fans. The Blosock fans were gloating loudly until they were slapped down and put in their place. It was epic. I'm still smiling.
P.S. I also just noticed that before the game, in the Comments field of my score card, I wrote "Moon Big Papi Eve."I couldn't allow these treasures to go unshared. I decided to work them in to some last-minute instructions for the Moon Big Papi website.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO "SEEING" EVERYONE THERE.
