After watching this game for 4 hours and 45 minutes, I only have the strength left to say two things:
1. Boy, am I glad that the Yankees won this one. And,
2. After these two games today, the day game tomorrow, er, I mean later today, is going to be very interesting – because of lots of very tired players.
In the interim, if you want to know what happened in this game – feel free to see the “Official WasWatching.com Scorecard for the Night Game of August 18, 2006.”
(Yes, I kept score this evening. It’s something that I almost never do – really – in the last twenty years, I’ve maybe kept score of less than a half-dozen games. But, for some reason, tonight, during dinner, I thought “Maybe keeping score will prevent me from stressing on this one – with Ponson pitching?” Talk about picking the wrong game to score! Note that I had to use extra pages on this one.)
