I can barely remember

the emotion and excitement of 1980. I just can't. I did remember the pain of 1983 and 1993. I did remember the lost Super bowl and the NFC Championship games. I did remember being manhandled by the Lakers with Shaq and Kobe. I did remember being humiliated in the Stanley Cup.

But as I sit in my office this morning, all I remember is Wednesday night. I remember a team that flew through the playoffs with just three losses. I remember Shane, Brad, Ryan, Chase, Carlos, Cole, Jimmy, and Pat (o glorious Pat).

I simply remember the joy of watching that 0-2 pitch that dropped off the table and Eric Hinske swinging over it. Oh my, what a moment.

What a moment.
