HOPE FOR PEDRO: What impresses me about this city right now is that everyone here seems to assume that there will be a Game Seven. The level of confidence -- in a city that saw three straight NFC Championship Game losses and a Super Bowl loss this decade, that still remembers the Whiz Kids -- well, it's just inspiring. Either that, or it's the necessary precondition for the heartbreak which may follow.
Our starting pitcher is well-rested, and thanks to this day off our city is finally a bit rested as well. Let's play ball.
[No Humiliation today; we need to give it a break every now and then.]
