In context, considering the circumstances, it may have been the worst pre-World Series postseaon inning in MLB history. (I've always believed baseball made a mistake by defining the World Series as part of the postseason instead of the championship after the postseason, so won't consider this in the same category as the ninth inning of Game 4 of the 1941 World Series or even the infamous Bill Buckner inning.)

I was working that night, covering a Juneau, Alaska, city Planning Commission meeting. I the nasty bits on my car radio while driving downtown. The Commission chairman made a joke about the the inning before starting the meeting and on my way home from the office after filing my story, a brilliant aurora borealis display filled hall of the sky. As someone who was taunted by Cubs fans even in Alaska (a copy editor I worked with who came from Chicago said he got Sox tickets for getting straight A's and tore them up) I thought it was as good an ending as I could have asked for on a very long day.

Note they said playoff. On October 12, 1929, the Philadelphia Athletics lit up the Cubs for ten runs in the bottom of the 7th in Game 4 of the World Series.

Yeah, but why make a video about that when you have limited to no footage?
