I'm not going to get into a lot of analysis of these matchups. We've all been thinking and reading about this game for days. We all know what's at stake and who is involved. Numbers don't matter anymore. Our sample size is so small at this point that there is very little we can predict about the next week. It's awesome!
Win or lose, be sure to take some time to enjoy the moment. Let yourself have a holy shit moment every once in a while. Unless you are a Yankees fan, the playoffs are rare. Don't let them pass by with the assumption that we'll be there next year. Soak it in. Enjoy it.
And then wherever you are, cheer your asses off! Just because we're happy to be here now doesn't mean we won't be even happier to be in the NLCS. So, come on, Reds! Make us proud and bring home a win today! Besides, I've got ticket to games 3 and 4 and would really like to use both of them!
