In which a rare bout of insomnia is rewarded
It is rare that I have trouble sleeping. I sleep well in planes, trains, automobiles, hotel beds, hotel floors, various time zones... But last night, sleep was elusive, so I got out of bed and flipped on the TV, where the Phillies and Reds were starting the 16th inning, yes really. I ended up watching until the end of the game, which was the end of the 19th inning, a walk-off RBI by Ibanez to score Rollins, making Wilson Valdez, the starting 2nd baseman who pitched a scoreless top of the 19th the winning pitcher. I love baseball.
