Do you remember when you were a little kid and your parents were taking you to (insert name of local amusement park here) in the morning? And you couldn’t get to sleep the night before? And when you finally drifted off to lalaland you had bad dreams about not waking up in time to go? And you woke up every hour and checked the clock?
Game 5 is still 13 hours and 40 minutes away and it’s all I can think about. Had anyone predicted I would be in this position last Thursday, I would have laughed in their face. Dreaming. Impossible. Fanciful at best. And yet here we are and here I am.
Maybe that’s what makes it so fun now. If they had moved past this round in Game 3 or Game 4 it wouldn’t have the same hollywood magic moment appeal. Games 3 and 4, while I watched every second, did not have this same electricity for me, even though our season was on the line in both of them.
I guess this is a fitting way to work in the playoffs. Representative of the whole roller coaster season. And that got us here, so hopefully it will get us through.
C’mon now Rays…….today’s the biggest day so far…….you can do it……..WIN!!!!!!
