But dang! I shouldn't be this disappointed.
It really is only a game.
Just one strike. That's all the Rangers needed. One strike!!!
I didn't think the Rangers could come back after a heartbreaking loss like last night's win. I had some hope that I might be wrong when the Rangers scored two runs in the top of the first inning. But by the time the fifth inning, you could literally feel it slipping away.
It was one the greatest World Series I've ever seen.
You can't get any closer to actually winning the whole thing than the Texas Rangers in game 6. They were one pitch away from uncorking the bubbly.....TWICE for goodness sakes!!!
Less than one second away from jumping for joy and bringing the first World Series to Texas.
Not once, but twice, the Cardinals would get crucial hits. You couldn't duplicate that on the play ground let alone in the World Series with the entire series on the line. Even the pitcher was getting a crucial bunt down to keep the rally going.
You just can't hit clutch like that. If you were to see it in the movies, you'd laugh it off as impossible.
That's how crazy the Saint Louis Cardinal's win is.
Hats off the Cards! One heck of a series.
I do have to say, I hate the way we give home field advantage for something as important as the World Series on a meaningless game as the All Star Game. I think the series could have been very different if the Rangers had home field advantage.
Alas...could of, should of...another year of asking what ifs. And that's the worst part of a loss like this.
There were so many missed opportunities that slipped away.
