Hello World!

Welcome to the life and chronicles of My Jersey Boys and me, B (the only girl who hangs out with them). Our original mission was to prove that not all of Jersey is obsessed with GTL. Now it's kind of become the place where we share our random thoughts, ridiculous stories, regular quote updates, and maybe a picture or video here and there. There's always something going on...

Love from,
The one and only,
B

The Baseball Finish

Posted by D on 1:22 PM
I know most people don't like baseball (or at least won't admit it), but if you care at all about sports, you have to (should rather) appreciate what happened last night. There were 4 games last night with playoff implications. 1 was a blowout. 1 ended with a 9th inning comeback victory for a terrible team. 2 ended in extra innings, both of which were tied in the 9th by the team that went on to win the game. The combined result of these 4 games was that two teams that were each at least 8 games out of the playoff race at the beginning of the month won their respective wild cards. Absolutely insane.

Joe Posnanski wrote an article about what happened that is slowly making its way around the internet. Here is the finale:
Funny, if I was trying to explain baseball to someone who had never heard of it, I wouldn’t tell them about Wednesday night. No, it seems to me that it isn’t Wednesday night isn’t what makes baseball great. It’s all the years you spend waiting for Wednesday night that makes baseball great.
I wish I could summarize anything as well as that. Read the whole thing. It will make more sense.
