three the hard way

I know what ya'll were thinking.

Bottom of the 9th inning, winning run at the plate, two outs. Tens of thousands of bad tempered Yankees fans waiting. NYPD in riot gear taking up positions around the field.

Full count.

This is where the Sox are supposed to blow it, where Clark is supposed to become this year's Aaron Boone, where the Yankees, once again, delivers the coup de grace to crush Boston's dreams. Instead, Foulke strikes Clark out and all of the sudden 0-3 became 3-3 in three days. This series has been incredible, insane thus far: most runs scored in a league championship game (#3), longest playoff game (#5), and tonight, first time a team has ever come from three games down to force a Game Seven.

Can't stop, won't stop.
(That's for you, J.C. Stop hating. Embrace the realness)

  • Great interview with Sandra Oh over at the NY Times but wait, what is this? Oh is married? To Alexander Payne?

    That sound you just heard is Pop Life's heart breaking.
