This Could Be Dangerous

Back in Chicago, I wound up staying up late to watch the end of two games that had thrilling endings in extra innings. I got this from the free preview week of the MLB Extra Innings package (which I'm probably going to wind up buying).

The Diamondbacks beat the Rockies 6-5 when Richie Sexson blasted a two-run homer in the 11th inning. Guess that Shawn Chacon as closer experiment might not last too long.

And, the Padres made two wild comebacks to beat the Giants 4-3 in the first game ever at Petco Park in San Diego.

I can see if I order this package, I'm probably going to watch way too much baseball this summer. I might even watch some Tigers games, because they are rapidly becoming the story of the year so far, with yet another win yesterday, 10-6 over the Twins.

Hmmm. So what's the problem? Too much baseball? Never!

And, I received an e-mail from Jessica whose friend Dave was at yesterday's game in Cincinnati, and filed this report:

I sat behind four nuns, and drunks in our section kept asking them to bless the Reds so maybe that had something to do with it. And some boys in yarmulkes were also a couple of rows further up which further points out how baseball brings us all together. Now if we could have had a few radical Muslim fundamentalists in our section we would have had everything.

Guess none of those people were praying for the Cubs.
