Ha! I watched the beginning and the end of the longest major league postseason game*
in history. Astros and Braves ~ 18 innings.
We were watching it on LeTube at Little Sister's, and something came up, we had to leave around the 5th ~ I was pissed, needless to say (even though we were losing). Got home late and they were ~
~ in the 12th!
I watched the rest of it. Talk about slack jawed and glassy eyed. There may have been a couple of hundred fans left in the park by the 16th. Even our guys in the broadcast booth had run outta steam. Lots of dead air time.
So, the camera's panning the "empty" seats, and closes in on an elderly couple. Really sweet, white haired, his arm around her, her head on his shoulder. Jim Deshaies, our announcer, quietly entoned ~ "See that couple? They were both in their early thirties when this game started."
Man, suddenly you could hear 'em LOL outta their chairs up in the booth. And yes, we won that one.
*This wiki page is great, our game is down under "Postseason," go figure.
