I’m not thrilled

October 20, 2006 at 9:24 pm (Baseball, New York Mets)

Yes, I’ll get over it. Yes, it will go down as one of the greatest games in playoff history. Yes, Oliver Perez, an unknown journeyman pitcher, came up big. Yes, Eddie Chavez made the most spectacular post-season catch since Sandy Amoros robbed Yogi in 1955. Yes, only one team can win. And yes Phillip, I remember your words o’ wisdom. “It’s only a game, dad”. [By the way, I disagreed then and now is no different]. Yes, life is so very good right now for me and it should be easy to say, “So what, wait ’till next year”. Should be easy, but it just isn’t. When is it that losing becomes “easy”? Never, I hope, because if losing matters not then winning matters not.
