Game 4

Last night I finally went to bed a little after 11:00 and missed the 9th inning of Game 4 of the World Series. Although I'm probably functioning better than I would be if I stayed up, I missed A-Rod finally showing us all how talented he is in the post-season, and maybe even more importantly, Johnny Damon's 2 stolen bases. Johnny Damon stole my heart years ago during the tragic 2004 post season. When he became a Yankee in 2005, it was an early birthday Christmas Present to yours truly. I even blogged about it here.

Last night, with the score tied and 2 out, Damon got on base, stole second, kept his head up as he was stealing second and realized that the Phillies had shifted so there was no one on third, and he could out run the nearby infielders. He then took third-putting himself in easy scoring position when Alex R. got a base hit. MLB makes embedding actual game play tough, so I wasn't able to find an embeddable version online, but here's a link to video of the stolen bases.
Tonight? You better believe I'm staying up for the whole game.

Thanks Nicole

It was cool because Damon said that he told his teammates about trying it sometime but but it never worked out. Good thing he waited until this time because if he had done it earlier in the year I am sure the Phillies would have had 3rd base covered by somebody.
It was amazing.

1 more game. Go Yankees. Just a little side note - even though Kyle Batty loves the Braves & watches every game, Marcia likes the "Jankees." LV MOM
