My Favorite Baseball Game of All-Time

I was in the Riviera Cafe and Sports Bar on the night of October 20/morning of October 21, 2004, and witnessed baseball history. History that may never be repeated. Ever.

10-3. Four straight. After being down 0-3, and three outs from being swept.

On the day I die, I'll still be smiling about it.

Here's a YouTube clip celebrating it. Enjoy:

Hi, Q:

Thought you might enjoy two looks at the Sox-Yanks from 2004, mine and a Yankees fan. You can tell which is which from the titles...

I admit on that day I rocked The Red Sox cap during my shift at Tower Records. The yankees must go down and they must go down hard!!


Q, you will never ever get tired of that, will you?

Damon's grand slam - I was just stunned and happy.

Never, ever, Steel. Doesn't matter what happens from here on. The 2004comeback will grow in stature as the years go on.

I'll never forget the madness that followed Damon's grand slam in the Riviera, Rick. The biggest home run in Red Sox history...
