It was the bottom of the 7th last night with the score 7-0, Rays. I saw people start to get up and leave.
Scenario: Yokum and Freida went to StubHub and purchased a pair of tickets for their 5th anniversary to the tune of $1,250. After racking up 7 runs against their beloved BoSox, the Rays had shattered their hope of a good evening, so they left to go make their own memories. Ewwww.
By the time they got to the car, it was 7-4, and they debated going back, but decided that it wouldn’t matter because the Rays will probably hit a few more HRs before the end of the night. They sat in the parkinglot, unable to make themselves leave hallowed ground.
A mere 45 minutes later, the BoSox had pulled out the second-biggest comeback in ALCS history for the win. Now they’re out $1,250 plus $198 in food and jerseys and missed the big event. I’d put Yokum on suicide watch, man. You don’t know what he’s capable of.
