October baseball rocks!

For years I have been a fair-weather friend to professional sports. I admit it, I'd normally take a Star Trek rerun over a ball game most of the times. When the playoffs are on and there is a local team involved, I will watch the games on TV, but otherwise I usually pass. That was until last night.
A vendor called me last week and asked if I wanted to be his guest at Game 4 of the ALCS at Jacob's Field. Of course, how could I not pass that up. Even better, I was allowed to take my girlfriend with me! And these weren't just any seats, these were Club Seats. When we got into the park, we were lead up to the Club area. If you have never had the chance to experience the Club, I highly recommend doing what ever it takes to get a ticket there. Including selling a first born if need be ;-)
It was fantastic. Pretty much an all-you-can-eat glut fest. From carved prime rib, roasted turkey, pasta, pizza, burgers, dogs and sandwiches. Wow! I was a kid in a candy store! We were so spoiled. But that wasn't really the best part of the night. The game was unreal. There was no score up until the bottom of the 5th when the Indians scored 7 runs! Talk about euphoria! But then Boston answered back with 3 back-to-back homers. Ugh! The nail biting was on! It was so much fun to get caught up in the game. And in the end when Cleveland won, the pure excitement was almost overwhelming. So it's one more game that Cleveland has to win, and hopefully that will be tomorrow night! I hope the crowd gets behind them as much as we did. I'm sure they will.

Just after 2 A.M.

It's a long drive from up there at that time of the night, but it was worth it!
