When The Shoe’s On The Other Foot

October 17, 2008

Boy does this bring back memories.

Martin Fennelly in the Tampa Tribune:

“As incredible as this season has been, this was more incredible.
As amazing as the 2008 Rays have been, this was more amazing.
And stunning.
And shocking.
And unthinkable.
Seven runs ahead.
Seven outs to the World Series.
No, no, no.
The magic collapsed in a heap.
The dream doubled over near the finish line.
Just before midnight, the Rays turned back into a pumpkin.
We thought we had seen it all, the very best of this team, and the last of the defending world champion Red Sox in this ALCS.
No, no, no.
It goes on.
The Rays, once seemingly moments from the World Series, walked from the field at Fenway Park as Sox danced and fans screamed, victims of what will go down as the great single-game comeback in LCS history _ the greatest collapse, too. The tubs of champagne, which had been sitting in tubs on carts, were quickly wheeled out of view.”
