There are no words

Here I am at the latest No Fluff, Just Stuff conference in Framingham, MA, meeting up with great people, learning lots of new things, when the Sox/Yankees game comes on.

We’re up 7 – 2 headed for the 8th inning.  Okajima (ERA: 1.76) is already in for the 8th, Papelbon (ERA: 1.50) is ready for the 9th.  The best bullpen in baseball is ready to go.

They give up six runs between the two of them and we fall behind 8-7.  It was so bad I forgot we had another inning to go.

Not that it mattered.  There are no words.  I was going to link to the game summary, but if you’re that interested, go find it yourself. 🙁
