Also - I was at the ballgame last night. What a rush! That place was rocking and rolling and when Kent hit the home run it was pure euphoria everywhere. Beer was flying, strangers were hugging and slapping hands, and everyone stayed in the stands and screamed for 10 minutes straight after it was over. No one wanted to go home. Wow!
I was thinking this morning that it was the first time I have ever been a spectator at a postseason sporting event that mattered for a team I actually followed. I was lucky enough to attend both the Super Bowl and the Final Four this year and neither was as exciting as last night - I mean, I liked seeing the Patriots win (I used to live in Boston many moons ago) and I picked UConn in all of my March Madness pools, but this was much different. I actually cared about the winner and was legitimately happy when my team won.
