I have to confess, I turned off the game last night after 8 innings.
My logic? I needed to sleep. And, I figured, if the Yankees somehow blew this one in the ninth, I would never sleep, at all, out of anger. So, I went to bed thinking “I’m happy now. In my mind, the Yankees are winning this one 2-1. And, in the morning, I’ll wake up and either see that 2-1 score hold up, or, if I need to be pissed about them losing this game, at least I’ll be doing it on a full-night’s sleep.”
And, then this morning, when I woke up, I turned on ESPN and saw what happened in the game after I turned it off.
Boy, that was smart, close, or what? Well, at least they won it in the end…or, did Hideki Okajima and Victor Martinez just blow it for the Red Sox? Heck, maybe Papelbon blew it? You tell me…
