Yes, I heard about the back-to-back-to-back-to-back home runs

Do you really think any friend or family member would fail to inform me of such an event, knowing that I was not going to be able to stay up to watch the game? Doug was the first to text me and all his text said was, “Wow, back-to-back-to-back-to-back home runs,” which left me guessing as to who might have hit them, although I suspected it was not the Yankees.

But as if you needed further proof of how awesome my experience on Saturday was, I was (and am) still on a high from it and the home runs and even the Red Sox sweep did not bother me in the least (although, I’ll admit that if it were closer to the post season, it might have).
