The Hammers were cruising along without a care in the world to the tune of 7-0 when the Nails slipped it into gear. The whole lineup started hitting in the last 4 innings and finally tied the score off Supe and his Hammer compadres in the 9th. The Nails were blistering Supe with serious trash talk while passing Duse's inhaler back and forth.
Supe maintained his dignity through all this, and achieved a degree of satisfaction watching the Bullet Bob Ichiro Home Run in the bottom of the 9th.
As Bullet crossed home plate on a passed ball, SuperJ got to point out to the Huffing Nailers, that their 5 run rally off him, merely made him the winning pitcher. AND, kicked in an important incentive clause in his contract with the Hammers, making him $33 richer. CHA-CHING!! FACE Nailers!!

Basically everybody wanted to listen to the Sox-Yanks on the radio. Even Bugs. He grabbed a pile of balls and got a good seat by the radioBut as it became obvious that the Red Sox were going to lose this game, forcing them to secure the Wild Card on the last day of the season, we all settled into the business at hand; helping Knappy umpire the game.
The Hammers scored 8 runs in the last 3 innings to make it respectable, and a fine early fall day was well spent as we broke camp for what would actually be the last TNB game of 2005.
Kenny had a great day, 2 ribbies, some good hill work, and 2 terrific recruits for his new White Sox PVOTB team.
Lee Skiffington and John Sanders will look just fine in White Sox uniforms. Hey, the way things are going they might be wearing the World Series Champ uniforms.
