And the crowd goes wild...

Well hot damn, we actually have a winning streak. It's amazing what happens when you start hitting homers instead of singles, ain't it? Really my sarcasm is unwarranted. This was what the M's were looking for all season: Boone, Ibanez and Sandfrog go deep, Ichiro goes 3-4 with a SB and never is heard a discouraging word. Keep it kids, the A's are back tomorrow, but Seattle lucks out and gets Redman and Harden in the first 2 games. Not easy, but winnable.

Not only did the Beloved M's win, but the well-liked Padres did too. I had given up on this game; I'm rather ashamed to say. It was 5-3, and I left to put away the groceries. Next thing I know, I hear Klesko hits a walk-off. Beautiful...

If you're a sports fan, and I'm assuming you are, tomorrow is a can't miss in the NHL. Hockey game 7's are just unbelievably exciting, and tomorrow Boston-Montreal and Calgary-Vancouver will settle things. Plus on Tuesday Toronto and Ottawa will have a game 7, and they have the added bonus of just hating each other. Playoff hockey is unreal. The most exciting sporting event of my life was a Canucks-Blackhawks playoff game, and nothing comes close to it.

I dunno what that means, but anything that combines Hockey and Ass-Whuppin, I'm game.
