It's been a few days. I'll bet everything thinks I'm not watching the Playoffs.
Hah! Am so!!
And I'm...what's that rock song say? "Lovin' every minute of it!"
Except for the Cubs being humiliated by the D-Backs.
Anyway. Boston is two up on the Angels after last night's GLORIOUS walk-off home run by Manny. Did you SEE that?? It might have hit someone on the street behind the Green Monster!
And Manny, being Manny, just stood at home plate with his fists raised triumphantly in the air as if to say, "That'll teach you to walk Big Papi to get to me!"
Red Sox win, 6-3.
Earlier in the day, I watched as the Evil Empire fell to the Indians, yet again, in 11 innings, 2-1. That was an incredible pitcher's duel. Fortunately, Andy Pettit doesn't take a loss for that game, because he pitched really well for the Yanks.
Shockingly, the Indians are up 2-0 on the Yankees. I'm not believing that. I'm lovin' it, but it's still pretty shocking.
Seriously, that home run by Manny was amazing. I replayed it about six times. In fact, I'm going to go watch again, now.
Here is a clip of Papi walking followed by Manny's home run.
This clip is longer...just Manny's home run from several vantage points.
This clip features a young man stealing a foul ball from the Angels catcher! You can barely see Stephen King sitting right behind the kid.
