What It Was, Was Baseball

Sleep deprivation for a long-time Astros fan living on the East Coast last night.

My word, what a game, what a series!

Astros-Dodgers World Series Game 5: The moments that made us lose our damn mind

The Astros and Dodgers broke the game of baseball into a million pieces:
Words fail. Analogies go limp. A common refrain for a game like Game 5 of the 2017 World Series is that baseball is drunk. Baseball is not drunk. Drunk people don’t fall up the stairs, through a window, and explode upon contact with the moon. This is not a movie. Movies have plots, logical progressions from A to B. This is not an avant-garde movie, either, where the director was trying to be weird. Both the Dodgers and Astros really, really, really wanted to be normal, and they absolutely could not.

I admire the Dodgers, too.


This is just one of those events where both teams show "never say die" isn't just a slogan.

Thank goodness today is a travel day.
