Hold your fire: the Rays have sold out Games 1 and 2

Oct 6, 2010, 1:34 PM EDT

I just tuned into the Rays-Rangers game and the first thing that announcer Don Orsillo said was that the Rays have sold out Games 1 and 2 of the Division series. So, there goes a whole week’s worth of “why can’t the Rays draw” complaints.  They can draw when the games matter.

In other news, it just occurred to me that this is the first ever weekday daytime playoff game that I’ve watched without having to lie about my whereabouts first.  It’s been an amazing run, really: every fall since 1998 I’ve managed to come down with a cold or car trouble or something for Game 1 of the Division Series. This year? No worries.

Damndest thing, that.

    Well, I have a cold. Though am also stuck at work. Clearly, it’s some sort of universal balance.

    You know that commercial where thousands of minor leaguers, hundreds of thousands of high school players, and millions of kids all want the big leaguer’s job. That’s how I feel about you, Craig… I’m watching on Gameday at the office, with a nice Word document ready as my cover…

    Such a good idea if you want a new ballpark, really kind of takes the choice right out of everyone’s hands.

    Well, see what happens when they sell out? Damn bad luck Rays fans!!!!

    Are we supposed to applaud them for selling out? Is this some big achievement?
