I was en route to the computer to post a nasty screed on the Athletics Nation comment section about bunting, when I passed the kitchen TV that my wife was watching. "And the game is over," said the announcers. Bucky Jacobson, who is roughly 7 feet tall and 400 pounds, hit a home run to win the game.
This was the fan equivalent of staggering around after having been shot, not realizing that you are dead. But then I realized that Jacobson's home run came at a very convenient time. In fact I was very concerned by its timing.
Maybe I can get Kerry and McAuliffe to complain about it on my behalf.
