They better win the division before that. I don't want to have Joe Buck's voice in my memories.

How can you forget::D:

"Off the wall (heavy sigh),the White Sox win (heavier sigh)".:angry:

-Game 2,2005 ALCS,after Joe Crede's game winning RBI double.
This was the infamous "A.J. strikeout" game.

Nice. Losing the fireworks sucks, but I love the 3 o'clock Saturday games. I'm going to the Sat and Sun Tampa games so hopefully we can clinch this at home.

I know late in those games the sun can be an issue though. The last 3 o'clock Saturday game I was at was when Jordan Danks whiffed on that fly ball against KC.

That's OK, it just means that the party will have to start around 1 PM now instead of 4.

I'm happy about the change because now I can take my kids to the game. Hoping that this is when we clinch the division.

I have been targeting this game for clinch day. Clinching it at 6PM just gives us more time to get insanely happy...and drunk.
It would be the perfect day to end it....but I am a pie-eyed optimist.:D:

The earlier the better, for my blood pressure's sake! :D:

We'll probably get Kenny Albert or Josh Lewin or the guy who used to do CBS NBA games. They usually assign Buck to the "bigger" game (read:Boston or NY).

The 29th is my wedding anniversary, so the change in start time will allow me to attend the game. I've had the tickets for a while. Back in 2008, the game against Detroit in which we forced game 163 against Minnesota also fell on the 29th. I was running to my car to meet my wife for dinner when Alexei hit a grand slam. :tongue:

I'm there and it's my birthday. A division title would be the present ever. However, I hope we clinch before then.

:gulp:

I'm hoping we clinch on the 27th that's when I'll go.

I hope Tampa continues to free fall and they aren't playing for anything in 10 days. (Although there seems to be something going on between Maddon and the Sox so it might not even matter if they are eliminated...)

Somebody's going to have to explain to me all this fretting over the Rays because they are just not very good. They're not bad, but you guys make them sound like a juggernaut.

When I got the email, I asked my rep if this changes early batting practice season ticket holders have that day. Early BP will be at 12:40 now.

Fretting is what we do best here. For some, it's a a way of life.
