Promises, Promises

As I've learned the hard way many times before, most notably on the last day of the regular season in 1998, getting one's hopes up about the progress of a game played in Denver is never a good idea. Yet I still find myself succumbing to temptation. When today's contest was 6 -1 in the Giants favor, I reminded myself to maintain an air of bemused detachment. But that hasn't helped me to deal with the emotional consequences of the bottom of the 6th inning.
