I only caught bits and pieces of the first part of this game – while we were getting the kids ready for bed. And, come 8 PM, it was time for The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Prison Break. So, in my house, score this one: FOX 1, Alfredo Aceves 0.
I did catch the tail-end of the post-game on YES shortly after 10 PM.
When I was watching early, I saw the whole thing with Tony La Russa. I have to confess that, animal rights efforts aside, I always thought that La Russa was a bit of a horse’s rear-end. But, the fact that he went out of his way to come see one of the final games at Yankee Stadium impressed me. I mean, if there’s anything that Tony La Russa doesn’t need in his life…it’s to watch a baseball game on his off-day. And, yet, there he was…attaboy Tony.
Congrats to Mo for career save #479. I swear…the dude is just an absolute freak. As much as we, as Yankees fans, appreciate Mariano Rivera (and we do!), it’s probably not enough. Years from now, we’re going to look back at his career and say “Did that really happen, or, were we dreaming?”
Nice little win for the Bombers today…but, with Boston winning, our tragic number is down to four. The Yankees should have that “x” next to their name by the end of the week…if not sooner….
Meanwhile, how ’bout those Mets? They’ve lost 3 games off their lead since Wednesday. Wouldn’t it be something if they provided some October humor again this year? Sure helps to deal with the stink/sting of this Yankees season.
