Brandon Inge: 20/20 Hindsight Journey

I couldn't jump in the game thread yesterday night or listen to the game live (May 8, 2012, Brandon Inge's walk off Grand Slam), so this morning I thought I'd check out the game thread to vicariously re-live the exciting finish.

Wow, there are some hilarious comments in there. I felt that the thread deserved a hindsight review. Don't take this personally, anyone...I just got a good laugh out of it. You guys and gals are awesome. My notes are in [italics]...ENJOY!

Confusion

Why is Inge batting 5th "protecting" our hottest hitter?

Inge Strikes Out

Inge only has 2 I thought.

by Cartwright on May 8, 2012 9:04 PM

My fault. It felt like three

by player20 on May 8, 2012 9:05 PM

They have been bad enough to count as 3.

Time for Kouz

by Tutu-late on May 8, 2012 9:20 PM PDT [stm did not give you permission to mention his name!]

Why? Did Inge get hurt?

by sc00by on May 8, 2012 9:20 PM PDT [moment of clarity]

I never wanted to agree but...I hate to say it now...I do.

by Cartwright on May 8, 2012 9:20 PM PDT [Please allow me to play you video of 2011 Kouz]

Using Humor to Cope
