What series is Eric Byrnes watching? He must be in a van out in the parking lot with his twin brother Jeff Spicoli, the always stoned star of the movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High, smoking something besides baseballs. Maybe he'll finally come to the conclusion that the "lucky" Rockies did outplay the D-Backs when he's sitting at home watching the Rox play the Sox in the World Series. The Rockies have outplayed, out hit and out managed the Diamondbacks every step of the way. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, Mr. Byrnes.
We are on the verge of one of the most improbable sports stories I have ever covered in my 25 year career as a sports cartoonist. To think that the Rockies are a game away from an appearance in the World Series is just flat out surreal to me. I keep thinking it's one of those things that's supposed to happen in the book of Revelation right before Gabriel blows the horn.
Please, oh, please leave your comments. This is just too good to blog about alone.
