I was originally going to just watch the Cardinals-Cubs game just to make sure the Cardinals were going to make a postseason exit. They did, and it felt great to see the Cubs clinch only their fourth playoff series ever and their first ever at home.
I wasn’t going to watch the Dodgers-Mets game, but I did, and the Dodgers won 3-1. I wasn’t prepared to get emotionally invested in the Dodgers only to see them come up short. I’m invested now, and Game 5 on Thursday will be insane.
