In My Write Mind
Have you ever been to the car wash where they soap the wheels and windshields before putting it through the long tube that soaps the car up even more, then the spinning brushes that buff the sides, and the sprays and even more soap and finally you get to the magic dryers that swoop down and suck all the soap and water and then, you think you're done and BOOM! there's two more guys, standing at either side of the car ready to wipe it down with not-so-clean rags? Have you? Maybe it's just a Queens thing.
But my point is, I feel like the car right now after watching these baseball games. I've been through it all, six games of Yankee-Red Sox ups and downs, sprays and brushes, almost-perfect games and walk-off home runs, extra innings, bloody ankles and blown saves, gone from Who's Your Daddy to Who's Your Dealer, soap and water and even the magic dryers. And just when I think I'm done...BOOM! There's this Game 7 tonight that stands there like the two guys ready to take me out of my misery. Except, I'm not so sure how I'll be after the experience.
Does that make sense? If not, welcome to my hell. Being a Yankee fan when the team has suspect pitching and is forced to play a deciding game when the series should've been wrapped up three days ago will make you use car wash analogies the morning after another wild game.
Sigh. I live for this.
