Oh woe, I'm leeching bandwidth from Boston Dirt Dogs. Whatever, if their servers can't handle it they don't deserve the amount of traffic they get.
Red Sox Make History, First Team Ever to Force a Playoffs Game 7 When Down 3-0 in the Series.
Mark Bellhorn Restores Own Good Name in Boston With Three Run Homer, Fangirls Said to Have Expected It All Along.
Schilling Pitches Like Nothing Ever Before Seen on this Planet; Ankle Bloody During Game, Pain Evident, He Still Goes 7 Innings, One Run, No Walks. Inhuman.
Yankees Fans Most Classless in Baseball: Sox Lost 19-8 at Home and No One Needed to Call the Cops in at Fenway. Way to Throw Stuff on the Field and Make Utter Asses of Yourselves, New York.
A-Rod Tries to Claim to Ump That Hitting Ball Out of Arroyo's Glove Was Part of His Normal Running Motion; Unless You Run While Flailing Your Arms Like a Girl, That Was Visibly Intentional, You Overpaid Moron.
Tony Clark (former tiger, as george is quick to point out) Looks Exactly Like a Ferengi if You Put the Ears on Him. C'mon People, Get With Me on This One. You Know It's True.
Keith Foulke Nearly Gives Nation Collective Coronary, Pulls It Off in the End. Has Probably Pitched Enough in Recent Days to Add Up to a Starter.
And Did I Mention That This is Going to Game 7?
Excited? Worried? Infinitely overwrought? Who, me? Don't be foolish, of course not.
So, who's it gonna be tomorrow? Wakefield or Lowe? As of right now the MLB site is saying TBA, while it said Wake just a few minutes ago, but Francona on TV said maybe Lowe. I'd put Sportscenter on but then I'd never get to bed. Yankees pitcher is also currently TBA. I suppose there's no use in me worrying about it from out here. That, of course, will not stop me from worrying myself sick.
What else can I say? Except, of course, why the heck weren't they playing like this for the first three games? It is an enigma that shall never be answered. Like lazy LS&A students who can only write a paper the night before it's due, maybe the Red Sox just need to have their behinds nudged a bit (a lot) before they get in gear. Whatever. So long as it keeps working tomorrow, I don't care what's getting them going. They can be having demonic sacrifices of barnyard animals at night for all I care. Just so long as they win.
Oh, and is anyone else still feeling weird about Muller in the number 2 slot? I dunno, it just feels... weird. Admittedly, it worked out today. Maybe I'm just not used to it yet.
Sleep now. Sleepity sleep sleep. Tomorrow I wear my 'Who Died and Made You Mark Bellhorn?' tshirt, because you really can't wear it all that often, so you have to sneak it in when you can :) Game 7 tomorrow. Game 7 tomorrow. Holy shit.
And for those of you patiently waiting for me to mention something other than baseball, have this fellow. It's part of my drawing homework for tomorrow, and I drew it during the game, so maybe it's good luck. Maybe he's looking towards a Game 7 win. The subject was 'point of view', and the rest of the drawing sort of shows that better, but I didn't like the rest of it, so this is all you're getting. Aren't you glad to see what I'm doing for class now, eh? What excitement.
Now, honestly, sleep.
edit: As of right now, according to the official MLB Sox site, it's Lowe v. Brown tomorrow. Ay. Everyone get your worry hats on. ALL SYSTEMS LOWE, THIS TEAM IS READY FOR TAKEOFF.
