I almost died watching game 5 of the ALCS. *Seriously* I held my breath the entire bottom of the 9th inning literally chanting *extra innings and we die* I could not look at the TV. I kept IM-ing Richard that I was dying. Some random excerpts:
Around the 5th inning: 0-2 Rays
[22:36] pureevil231: oh, and how are you?
[22:42] aniRayne: pissed off
[22:43] pureevil231: why?
[22:43] aniRayne: the fucking red sox
[22:43] pureevil231: ah
around the 7th: 0-5 Rays
[22:56] aniRayne: This game is an abomination
[22:56] pureevil231: and?
[23:00] aniRayne: you hush…lol 😛
That’s when i gave up and turned the TV off and started rambling:
[23:31] aniRayne: I’m putting nine tails on the shelf for a couple weeks
[23:32] aniRayne: To update ‘wind and fire pt 2’
[23:32] aniRayne: *prepares to duck thrown objects*
[23:33] pureevil231: *throws at Tactical Nuke at you*
[23:33] pureevil231: *runs like hell*
[23:34] aniRayne: you missed
[23:34] pureevil231: *boom, you are dead*
[23:34] aniRayne: the undead don’t die lol
[23:34] pureevil231: it’s a combination of heat and light
[23:34] pureevil231: the undead’s 2 major weaknesses
[23:35] aniRayne: LOL
Why yes…I am insane…LOL
I was so nervous I was talking about stocks…WTF?!
[23:41] aniRayne: oooo…rite aid’s stock is up to $0.78
[23:41] pureevil231: as long as people are putting money into the stock, it will raise
[23:42] pureevil231: if not, it’s going to bomb
[23:42] aniRayne: it’s about to get delisted
[23:43] pureevil231: yeah
Then I got a couple text messages from Nolls…
Nollie: We will lose. But this game, with dignity intact.
Nollie: I LOVE JD DREW!
I pull up TBS hot corner
K: Nolls I’m dying
N: I’m already dead. Mastie don’t make me hate you.
Then I went back to chatting: (nervous chatter once again)
[23:49] aniRayne: OMFG!
[23:49] aniRayne: Boston just came back from 0-7 in 2 innings!
[23:50] aniRayne: 7-7 top of 9th
[23:50] pureevil231: shit son
[23:51] aniRayne: the crowd in going insane!
[23:52] aniRayne: they’re at Fenway
[23:52] pureevil231: uh… no shit?
[23:52] aniRayne: sorry
[23:52] aniRayne: I forget how close you are lol
[23:53] pureevil231: in maine, it’s split between the yankees and the sox
[23:53] pureevil231: I know how friggin hardcore Baseball fans are
[23:54] aniRayne: yep
[23:54] pureevil231: especially the sox and the yanks
[23:54] aniRayne: ohio is split between cincinnati reds/bengals and cleveland indians/browns
[23:54] aniRayne: yes
[23:55] aniRayne: I fucking hate the MFY
[23:55] pureevil231: I see
[23:55] aniRayne: mother fucking yankees
[23:55] aniRayne: lol
I start to panic over Mastie pitching…and my sexy Mastie does not let me down…
[23:59] aniRayne: fuck yeah double play

[00:20] aniRayne: Big Papi had a 3 run homer in the 7th
[00:20] pureevil231: cool
[00:20] aniRayne: Its deja vu all over again
[00:21] pureevil231: the rays won’t win
[00:21] aniRayne: I hope not
I finally exhale the breath I didn’t even realize I was holding…
