DAMN! I was busy today at work..BUSY ya hear me?? I forgot the boys were playing mid-afternoon...and so when I went on line to SG...all were talking about the game. Dangit...so I turn on GameDay and watch well the updates. I still didn't have time to keep up with posting and keeping up with what was going on. I left work 15 min late, walked in turned on the game....when SotB called me....she wants me to sit and watch the game while she is driving home..??? I'm like "uhmm ok" She was trying to get home for the bottom of the 9th...I told her she wasn't going to make it cos there were 2 outs....and now Tek just got out. She asks.."You DO know what's going on right now don't YOU?" I look at the screen..looked at the score...and said "OH MY GOD!" and THEN I got nervous. Kotsay is up....grounds out to Lugo...Kendall is next and again...grounds out to Lugo....ok just one more....come on Ground OUT...FLY FUCKING OUT...STRIKE OUT...we don't care at this point...Schill takes a deep breath....shakes off Tek for apparently a slider....then throws a fastball...Shannon Stewart is up....Schill takes a deep breath...shakes off Tek for apparently a slider...then throws a slider.....and Shannon don't even wait....hits the first pitch and BAMM...hit to right...just out of reach for Cora to grab it. And the No-No is over....::long sigh::
I was thinking it was ironic that a player with a Irish name mess up the No-No for Curt. But on the other hand...we got a Win. Curt being interviewed...was gracious....saying the team needed the win...yah he recognized what was going on...but the team needed the win. So Schill pitched his heart out....and Papi gave us our one run to win the game with one of his classic homeruns off of Blanton.
I can live with that....and I'm sure Curt can too.
