If this was not the best game I have watched so far this season, it was certainly the most exciting. After being up by 5 runs, the Yankees lost the lead in the eighth inning. No I am not kidding. I watched as the Red Sox chipped away at our lead, 1 run in the fifth, 3 runs in the 6th to Yankees 1 run, 1 run in the seventh, Yankees were still ahead by 1 run, then in the ninth inning the unthinkable happened, someone gave up a 3-run home run. I was sick, I was heartbroken, I was ready to turn off the T.V., blaming myself for watching (see last post). It was painful. I looked at Nicky (my sweet Nicky, who is out with a bicep strain) looking so sad in the dugout, not being able to play and help his team.
