Ugh...the day started so promisingly:
1. The Red Sox prepping for a major comeback against the Angels
2. The Giants lining up to squash the Raiders like a bunch of rotten grapes
3. The Patriots and Broncos setting up for a mile-high matchup
The Red Sox lost as Papelbon gave up three runs in the 9th inning, eliminating them from post-season play
The Giants were crushing the Raiders and then CBS decided that the blowout wasn't interesting and so didn't let Giants fans continue to watch it.
The Pat's defense destructed, the offense looked sloppy, and the Broncos won in overtime.
To add insult to injury, the Yankees then beat the Twins, eliminating any interest in watching the final two weeks of baseball.
Oh well. Only five months until Major League Baseball Opening Day 2010. Hope springs eternal.
