I’ve been out of it for days with insomnia and stomach aches. So I slumped my groggy ass over to the computer, didn’t even know if Atlanta was playing, checked it out. Huh, I says, tied with Philly in some mega-run game in extra innings.
My favorite quote from last night’s game is from Matt Diaz:
On coming back from 6-0 to tie against Halladay: “It’s one of those where you’re like, surely Roy Halladay is not going to give up a grand slam. But in the back of your mind you think, ‘Well Mac’s definitely going to hit a grand slam here.’”
Made my 11 year old watch the condensed game with me. Fantastic win! So glad I stayed up for it. Did y’all notice Prado, Rev, and Freddie had cups of water waiting on the first step of the dugout during Chipper’s at bat? They ha Steve’s premonition as well. Then I loved Chip’s casual gaze into the dugout after the homer just watching his buddies, soaking it in.
I say we win today! Bub, go get your gall bladder removed.
