UPDATE: WHITE SOX WIN GAME 4!!! WHITE SOX SWEEP THE SERIES! WOOT!
So, in the longest game time wise in World Series history, that also tied for length innings-wise (5 hours, 41 minutes for 14 innings), the White Sox managed to win their third World Series game. Only one more win to go...
...which may be incredibly difficult to get to, but we're three games closer than Houston. I first thought that Game two was incredible, and then I watched Game three. Well, I watched half of game three. See, I have a take home exam due at 1pm today (I've already finished it), and I thought "White Sox, or Grades... White Sox or Grades..." and Grades won out. So, at about the fifth inning I went down to the computer lab to work (I concentrate better there), and started my Poli Sci exam. Mind you, I didn't abandon my White Sox altogether - I had the box score refreshing in the background.
I occasionally would stop upstairs and watch the White Sox bat, but for the most part I was a good student. When the number of innings reached 12, I started making sure I watched every White Sox at bat - and I'm glad I did - as I got to see Blum's Homerun that finally pulled the Sox ahead. Blum had been brought in during the bottom of the 13th inning, and he went up with two outs. So, in his first at-bat in the series, he puts the Sox in a position to win the game - and to top it all off, he's a former Astro. So that, plus a walked run, gave the Sox a score of 7-5 going into the bottom of the 14th.
It was fairly poetic, really.
In other news, I beat Keanu's Ascender High Score - so there Mr. Hon. You may know Chemistry, and have a band, and live off campus, and have beautiful girl hair... but at least I have the Ascender High Score! Yeah... Anyways, I have been working on my follow up game to Ascender, but as the semester progresses I will likely have less time than usual to work on it. Don't expect a release anytime soon - just enjoy the fact that I finished one of my games in the first place.
Personally, I'd just like to see a score up there besides ours. I mean, I know several other people who have been playing it - I just wonder why they haven't pinged with LeaderBoard to at least clinch the #4 or #5 spots...
