I never leave baseball games early

I never leave baseball games early. Doesn't happen. Could miss a great moment. An heroic, game-winning-extra-base-hit type of moment, or a charming Don Mattingly-popping-a-piece-of-a-kid's-popcorn-into-his-mouth-after-catching-a-foul-pop-by-the-stands type of moment.

Last night I left early. As Mike Francessa said this morning on Imus, it was like watching a prize fight where the challenger KOs the champ in the first round, then drags him around the rink for twelve rounds.

Hats off to the Sox.
