I Guess I'm It...

Because I've been tagged....I can't sleep, so I guess I'll play along.
10 years ago, October 1995:
I was in second semester of Grad School at NYU. I remember watching game 2 in the student newspaper office. I nearly lost it when Burnitz crushed that homer to win the game. I also remember watching game 5 at work and almost smashing a desk when Griffey crossed the plate to win the game. My lifelong hatred for Grrifey, Jr and the Mariners began that night.

5 years ago, October 2000:
I remember getting hit with a mail carton by Metstradamus for taunting him after the Yankees won Game 4 at work. I don't know why. I've always thought "They're gonna laugh at you! They're all gonna laugh at you!" from the movie Carrie was hilarious. I guess he didn't get the joke. I was living where I live now in Brooklyn.

One Year Ago: October 2004
Experiencing the worst sports month of my life. Watching our nemesis celebrate in our cathedral still sickens me almost as much as looking at this....

I only have this to say...Never again. Never again.

Yesterday: Wednesday & Thursday (since this is technically Friday)
Watched the fat bastard blow a 4-0 lead with the help of Strong Island resident Tony Graffanino (possible Imperial Spy? Perhaps) and then I watched us do the same thing versus Anaheim. A busy day at work. Not overwhelming, but busy. Thursday was a ry busy day capped off with the NYPD/FBI annoucement that terrorists want to blow up the subways. Fun, fun....
