Poor Zack Greinke. I mean, really. He's (probably) the 2009 Cy Young winner, stuck on the worst team in the league. It would have been nice for him to get a win today.
On the other hand, that would have required the Twins losing... so.... sorry Greinke. Too bad. Any other time of year I'd be generous and have a soul, but right now I'm a little more concerned with making it to the post-season than with the greater good.
The following is a graph of my anxiety throughout the game:
Of course, we just had to make it interesting.
Notable Quotes of the Game:
Delmon: I got a hit again!!!!!!
Blackburn: I rule.
Mauer: Me too.
Cuddy: I HEART HITTING!!!! *blinding smile*
Denard: Dammit guys, do I have to save the day AGAIN?? (contorts entire body to make physically impossible catch)
Mijares: (to Denard) Yep. You do. Sorry man.
So that, in a very abstract way, is what happened. In other news, I posted this on my FB status following Cuddy's homer:
THANK YOU CUDDY. JEBUS.
To which a friend of mine from high school replied:
"I misread that as 'Cuddly Jesus'
To which Clayton replied:
Cuddly Jesus. Sacreligious, yet adorable. I like it. Cuddy, thou shalt be Cuddly Jesus.
I now return to multiplie regression analysis. I hope you all have a more interesting night than I do. :)
