Wow. What a Game Five! What a series it’s been so far. Those of you who know me, know that my beloved San Francisco Giants failed to make it to the World Series for the third year in a row. But I still watch the games. Well, not every pitch, but I check out the score, walk a way if it looks like it’s going to be a lopsided game. And try not to get too emotionally involved.
I thought I was going to turn the game off last night when Clayton Kershaw entered the game with a three run lead. I mean, it’s Kershaw. Give him run support in the regular season and it’s pretty much lights out.
So I ate my dinner, worked on my book and when the Dodgers went ahead 4-0 in the fourth inning I grabbed my Kindle and took a bath. I was happily immersed in a make-believe world when I heard my husband’s excited shouts from the living room. Now, we’re Giants fans, so there is no love lost for the Dodgers. I came out to find the game was tied up.
Okay. I’ll watch. This could be good, but if the Dodgers take the lead again, I’m out. So they scored another three runs. But then so did the Houston Astros. A 7-7 tie, we’ve got ourselves a ballgame.
And what a game it was. Very exciting to watch, even for semi-objective fans like myself, who don’t care who wins as long as it’s not the Dodgers.
Oh, and to add to all the excitement, my publisher has put BETTER THAN PERFECT on sale for a limited time.
