Because I had to see a show on Broadway on Thursday, and go to a party this evening (along w/ 3 of the other 5 on the masthead), I missed watching games 5 & 6. Because you don't F*** with a streak (according to Crash Davis in Bull Durham), I am wary about watching game 7 live.
In 2004, Boston won and in 2005 the Nationals came to DC. In 2007 Boston won, and in 2008 the Nats got a new stadium. Hmmm, if Boston wins in 2008, maybe the Nationals will at least finish 2009 with a winning season. I'm not asking for much, just a better record than this year.
The baseball gods have been bery, bery good to me, I don't even care that I have a crappy team in my back yard. I'm thankful to have a team in my back yard.
UPDATE: I kept hope alive...and then watched it slowly die in the 8th inning. There is no crying in baseball, the Rays deserved to win that game. I'd love to see them sweep the Phillies in Four.
