Confession: this post has nothing to do with personal finance. I just couldn’t resist posting about Sunday night’s ALCS Game. Plus, I think EVERYONE needs to see this still from the game.
It was the bottom of the 8th inning, the Red Sox were down 5-1, there were 2 outs in the inning when David Ortiz comes to the plate. I think we all know what happens now. He’s David Ortiz, the greatest clutch hitter OF ALL TIME EVER. He obviously hits a grand slam to tie to game. No big deal. But even though we all expected it, that didn’t stop all of Red Sox Nation from jumping out of their seats and screaming with joy when we saw the ball fly into the bullpen.
I don’t know what’s more impressive: that Ortiz hit that grand slam, that Torii Hunter flipped backwards over the bullpen wall to almost catch the ball, or that this cop could care less about Hunter’s safety. He, like the rest of Red Sox Nation, is just enjoying a moment of pure baseball bliss. There is literally nothing better in October than classic Red Sox comeback baseball. Forget pumpkin-spice lattes, forget apple crisp, fall is about play-off baseball.
