it is high, it is deep into the night!

Re: this plan, well, that's cool, now I know what it must feel like to be terrified of flying. You grip the arm rest with white knuckles, you feel nauseous, and when the plane finally lands, you feel a rushing sense of euphoric relief.

My plane was already beginning its descent in the bottom of the ninth, and there was some concern that the flight would land and the satellite feed would cut out before the outcome of the game was known. Fortunately, Manny had other ideas and set everybody home happy. Let the record show that I was not the only person on that flight to throw up Manny-esque victory arms in my seat, and there was a very hilarious spontaneous round of applause.

Scattered, jet-lagged thoughts:

1. The regular season 2007 Red Sox would have figured out a way to lose this game. Hell, they would have figured out a way to lose this game in the 5th, 8th, 9th AND 10th innings. But none of that matters now.
2. If, every time the Red Sox are in danger of losing a close game, I could have the ability to flip over during the commercials to watch the 10,272nd replay of Joba Chamberlain throwing a wild pitch while covered in gnats, that would be just great.
3. Cinco Ocho has a post season victory.
4. Cinco Ocho may start moonlighting as a first base coach.
5. Manny wore a suit and tie to his post-game interview, and it looked just as baggy and ridiculous as his uniform.
6. Manny had a post-game interview.
7. Do you think Schill and Beckett watched the game together at the hotel? Why couldn't NESN have had a camera following them the whole way? I can only imagine this was comedy gold. Once Beckett realized that Game 3 could be the clinching game, he probably started trying to trick Schill into playing Rock, Paper, Scissors for the spot so he could start the game himself on three days rest.

YOU GUYS, I LOVE THIS TEAM. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY DO.

"It feels great, man. It's been a long time, I don't do something special like that. But I haven't been right all year long. But when you don't feel good and you still get hits, that's when you know you are a bad man."

Anyone see Pap'ss post-game interview? The question is "what happens now on that cross-country flight after a game like this?"

Pap: "Hopefully, I'll take all of David Ortiz's money...and if Manny wants to jump in, I'll take his paycheck too."

two things:

a) what was hilarious to me was when manny was doing on the on-the-field interview, i had this moment where i was like "ooooh, right, that's what his voice actually sounds like." i don't think i've heard him speak in, like, three years? that's how long it's been since he's talked to a reporter on camera.

b) well, paps is a cribbage CHAMPION.

It's similar to Moses coming back down from Mount Sinai...only instead of carrying on with some jibber-jabber about "not coveting" such and such, he informed us that God thinks he is "a BAAAAAD man."

One other thing: Like everyone else in America, I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the premiere of Frank TV. I just wish TBS would publicize it a little more.

i meant to say, there were many parts of listening to the game on XM radio that were completely maddening, but i went 4.25 hours without a frank tv ad, and that was pretty fucking priceless.

Beckett probably skipped the Rock-Paper-Scissors with Schill and went straight for either the drinking contest or full-on drugging to get Game 3.

And I do love that Joba's full on complete meltdown was started by a bunch of "Canadian Soldiers". Maybe this is Gagne's treat to the Red Sox?

My gosh am I happy you were able to listen to the game, because I fear for your sanity had you landed in LA only to realize you had missed that wild and crazy night at Fenway.

When Manny stopped and gave his on-field interview, they played it over the PA in the Park, and I swear the crowd about died in disbelief. An old dude sitting behind me said, "That cannot be our Manny. What have they done with our Manny?" HEE.

Manny's postgame interview looked like he was standing behind one of those things they have at fairs and carnivals or whatever where you stick your head through a hole and you look like you're a mermaid or herding sheep or Scooby Doo or something. The suit looked that awkward on him.
