Me too. And then, I get a call from a friend in Minneapolis (!) asking me if I am loving this collapse. Glorious in epicness.

Especially the lucky SOB who actually got the baseball and auctioned it off for over $100K to the dufus at Harry Caray's to spice up their spaghetti sauce, while maintaining his anonymity.
Edit: After seeing the Rangers get within one strike of the World Series, TWICE, getting within 5 outs is just meh.
