J. is quite choked about this. The Red Sox were in 2nd place!
And all because of rain cancelling the double header game (against Chicago). He had been so looking forward to hearing the games since yesterday. Especially with Mrs. X off to her aunt’s for the whole day and evening, he had planned a get together with some buddies —B. has a great shortwave radio. And now, not only does he not get to hear the game, but the darn Yankees win the pennant. He bristles.
