I still think he should have given Pedro the choice when he did. I don't think that inning should have gone any other way; to do otherwise is to treat your players like cattle, moving them around like pieces on a board.
So anyway, I was upset they had lost, very upset that neither the Red Sox nor the Cubs were going to the World Series, and annoyed that I'll have to be rooting for the Marlins soon. Then I went to bed after half an hour to cool down... and I've woken up, and it just doesn't seem so important anymore.
This is why I call myself a fair-weather fan. It's one of the nicest fan types to be... I remember back when the Vikings were beat by the Falcons in... what, 2000?... cheated out of their shot at the Super Bowl by a bad day. That depression lasted longer than this. Maybe I'm starting to prepare myself for this kind of thing, especially where the Red Sox are concerned? I dunno.
Just wait 'til next year. I actually want it for the Cubs more than for the Sox next year, at the moment.
