oh and two

The Red Sox blew a 4-0 lead last night, and lost 5-4. They're down two games to none to the White Sox.

Several teams have come back from 0-2 to win a best-of-five series. The ones I immediately remember are the 2001 Yankees, who won three straight to beat the A's, and the 1995 Yankees, who lost three straight to the Mariners. So I won't despair.

The way this Red Sox team is playing right now, I wouldn't pick them to win three straight. But I'm prepared to be surprised.

I feel your pain. The Leafs scored about 0.017895 seconds into the game last night, and still lost to the Senators. A shoot-out??? When the f*** did the NHL start deciding games with that pansy European formula? REAL hockey players play till someone scores or they all die. DIE!! :)

At least the Barenaked Ladies sang the national anthem. That was nice. :)

I know what you mean!! I felt the same way when the Yankees - who had the exact same record as the Red Sox - won the division because of the two teams' regular-season head-to-head match-ups. Who ever heard of that kind of tiebreaker in baseball??? Play a one-game winner-take-all playoff like you're supposed to, goddamnit!!
