Not really OT when you think about it

Life is good here in Geezerville, thanks to a 6 run 8th inning, and a two out, two strike homer by a guy with a .108 batting average in the 9th. The Rays didn't give up, and they kept battling. Their head coach, Joe Neuheisel, decided to go against the conventional wisdom and called upon Dan Johnson to run a fake punt from the Rays 20 yard line on fourth and twelve. Meanwhile, the Stanford Yankees had pulled all their regulars, thinking a one touchdown lead late in the game would be enough. The point of all this is that at some point in August, some smart statistics company looked at every scenario possible, and said the Rays had less than a one per cent chance of making the playoffs. That may well be the same bunch of smart people who say the Furd will win by three touchdowns up at the farm. I hope our guys watched what was probably the most heartbreaking and then thrilling baseball game I've seen since Kirk Gibson's homer in 1988. For a Rays fan, this is the 1965 just$c* Beban-to-Altenberg game all over again. I am not prepared to concede this game to Stanford. Not any more.
