The game is still going on, top of the 13th right now, thanks in no small part to Jonathan Papelbon's failure to pitch a clean eighth inning. Papelbon's comments about wanting to close the game down are comical, and while they were blown out of proportion by the NY media, Papelbon isn't exactly an innocent bystander when it comes to exaggeration.

from ESPN, or should we just call it all Boston, all the time? I wasn't there, so I don't know what type of "threat" was made toward his wife. I will say this, though. Papelbon is officially in the running for biggest sissy in the league. He's got some more whining to the press to do before he overtakes uber-sissy Kevin Youkilis, but he's well on his way.
Oh, one other thing. The douches at FOX should be ashamed of themselves for cutting to commercial in the middle of Enter Sandman. Check the comments on the last post for a more vitriolic diatribe on that situation. How did the "elder statesman" Mo Rivera do in the game? Well, he went 1.2 scoreless innings and actually worked out of a tough jam, unlike a certain sissy we've already talked about.
14th inning now, and going strong. Looks like I won't be getting to bed early tonight after all.
