I was at the game yesterday and before we went into the stadium I said to my girlfriend, "This is what it was like every game back in the day..." with the hordes of fans. People were pumped up and buying tickets off scalpers. As awesome as the game was, the fans were even better - cheering good plays and jeering missed calls. We're a smart sports town but we've been fucked over a few too many times. Baseball isn't in our blood the way hockey is. How many Canadian sports columnists have yammered on about American fans not getting 'our game'? It's the same shit and it ain't fair.
Regardless, we saw Jose drill another while Jon Rauch tore the ump a new one. And all the while we were there, being the incredible fans we are and the incredible fans we will be, once this shit turns the corner.
