Was This Really THIRTY FOUR YEARS AGO Today??? Oy Vey! October 2, 2012

It just seems a lot more recent.

Even after the Sox finally got their century-long revenge against the Yankees in 2004.

We’re gonna get a 1 game playoff by design this year, between the wild cards in each league. I’m not crazy about the idea since the entire baseball season is based on winning series of games between teams. It ought to be a 3 game series with a shortened season, perhaps back to 154 games.

Someday they’ll figure it out & get their precious TV revenue, but in the meantime, an entire season for someone will come down to some random moment like Bucky Dent’s unlikely homerun in that October 2, 1978 playoff.

I thought it was great when I watched it live when I was a kid. Now…. I gotta admit, I think it ought to be a 3 game series.

As long as the Yanks win it, of course!

Here’s to October baseball!
