Chuckles (Twins 10 Astros 6 Game 136)
Other places it was Labor Day and the last day of the fair, but in our house it was preparation day. The next day my wife was due at the hospital for a thyroidectomy. She's fine, and she's going to be fine. It's just another annoying grown-up thing that reminds a person real life always wins.
We stayed busy preparing for our trip to the hospital, and the game itself didn't get much attention.
Still, when I heard about
Daydream Disbeliever (Twins 2 Mariners 8 – Game 98)
The Twins got knocked out early in this game, but everybody played nine innings anyway.
During my little league tour of duty, I spent most of time at whichever part of the outfield they felt saved me from embarrassing attempts at fielding fly balls. If I was lucky and the ball stayed far away from my glove, I had nothing to do but daydream away until I was forced to humiliate myself at the plate.
