Man, I am still so amped up about our latest W and it's been over an hour since it went in the books. I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't too optimistic about our chances against the Reds after our dead week in Houston and Chicago; I just figured the Pads would stay at home dead- the last time I was anywhere near this happy to be wrong was probably ten years ago when it turned out that the head cheerleader did want to waste her time with some mohawked loser... This is the part where I say "but I digress" and get back to my original streak-related shpiel so anyway, I can't even narrow down my list of adjectives that describe this stretch; there are so many! These past four games have been- among other things- astounding, rad, killer, swell, nifty, badass... well, you get the idea. Every piece has been falling in place; guys who have been struggling have stepped it up, Bud has somehow avoided sabotaging us, our arms have shined both starting and relieving, and even luck has been on our side- it seems like we'd been getting jobbed by the umps and bad hops all year but the past few games we have caught every wicked break. I don't know how long this will last but I do know that I'm gonna enjoy every second of it!
