Game 7 of the World Series last night was everything I hoped it would be. It was amazing. Absolutely amazing.
The game had it all. twists, turns, drama, rain, extra innings, story lines out the ass. Never before have I seen a game exceed the hype, and there was an enormous amount of hype going into the game. Phenomenal stuff start to finish from both sides, made for an absolute joy to watch as a sports fan.
I work with a bunch of people that don’t really like or follow sports at all. That’s fine and all, but it kinda blows my mind that they’re missing out on one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had watching an event. Once or twice a year I’m absolutely gripped by the anxiety of sports, and last night was one I’ll remember for a long, long time. The game was so tense, I couldn’t even sit down. I only recall the Pats/Seahawks Superbowl as the last time I’ve been so emotionally invested in a game, in which I have no teams playing in (Atlanta sports). I watched game 7 last night at a packed sports bar, and it was some of the most fun I’ve ever had watching a sporting event. A memory I’ll cherish for a long time.
Speaking of memorable baseball games… There’s very few that i’ll remember forever, and here they are off the top of my head.
