Well, being from Boston, I am a huge sports fan for my hometown teams. Did anyone else stay up last night and watch the game? It ended around 330 AM here on the East Coast and of course was a disappointment for me because the Red Sox lost, but it was fantastic to watch anyway. I had to watch it all.
Any of you guys stay up for this, and getting into the series?

I know I have a lot of friends on the west coast so I’m sure it was an enjoyable evening for you. :)

Either way, it was very exciting and it’s not often you get to watch a baseball game for seven hours. I actually enjoyed it.

It was a great game for sure. Walk off homer is always a great way to end it.

A classic. Although, as a Giants fan, I'm counting on the Sox to beat the Dodgers, so I was disappointed in the results. But that was a game people will be talking about for years.

Man, this was a hard game to watch all around - just staying up that late, then our side losing, though it will become a classic WS game for all time. And Eovaldi is superman - a 97 pitch relief stint. Even growing up just outside Boston and being a diehard Sox fan, I was also a Dodgers fan in the Drysdale/Koufax era. So it's great to see these two teams going at it in the world series. I expect the Dodgers to take game 4 and maybe 5, as we've kind of run out of pitchers, so we'll have to get it done in Boston. Either way it's shaping up as a great series.

Dodgers pitching staff is tired, too. I expect a slug fest today, and I wouldn't bet against the Sox in a high scoring game.

The next game has started. I hope it’s a great game but I hope it ends on time. I’m getting too old for this crap. LOL

How’d that turn out for you?

OUCH ! That was a brutal last two innings for the Dodgers. If a World Series game can go 18 innings. I believe the Dodgers can win three straight. Do not print the Wheaties boxes just yet....

Hi Mark, I stayed up through the whole game Friday night, too. That was a heart breaker, but not a spirit breaker. Game 4 more than made up for it! Brock Holt is a life saver! I'd love to know what Chris Sale said, in the dugout! Whatever it was, he sure got them all going. This is the best Sox team ever! Go Sox!!!
