I came straight home from work tonight and picked up my wife and kids – and we went to the movies. It was the 7:20 PM showing of Captain America.
Man, would I have kicked myself if I missed CC throw a perfect game and/or no-hitter.
I’ve seen every Yankees no-hitter since 1983 in real time. And, I don’t want that streak to end any time soon…
There’s few baseball joys that can compete with seeing that last out for the pitcher of your team, nailing the no-no. It’s major fist pump time.
Heck, I was late for work in 1983 because I didn’t want to leave the TV and see Rags get his.
