Two Months Later…

So I'm looking at Deadspin's roundup of October, and I can't help re-reading the triumphant recap of Game 7. (Hey, Will's a Cardinals fan; while I wish I were the one being gallant in victory, I don't begrudge him his happiness.)

Anyway, in looking through the comments about the post I found this one:

At least we know that Beltran will never get eaten by a T-Rex.

And I laughed. And am still laughing.

Perhaps the healing has finally begun….

    Nope, healing still pending here. Lucky.

    It took me a lot to work up the courage to go read through the comments on that post on Deadspin and the live game thread on Metsgeek a few weeks ago. I felt like I had to do it, the way you have to finally dunk your entire body into the water. For closure, I don't know.
    Frankly I've reimagined the end of the game so many times that my made-up version is more vivid than what actually happened.
