Let's limit this to something you witnessed in person.
My favorite memory was in the early 90's. I went to a game with my mother, which we did quite often. We would get free parking under the viaduct and bring our own food - and they would even allow us to bring in our own drinks back then.
We were playing the A's who were still excellent and I think we were down by a run in the 9th. The A's brought in Eck of course and I started whining that it was over and I wanted to go home.
I was an emotional teen at the time so cut me some slack
My mother insisted we stay with some crappy line like "it's still anybody's game" or "it ain't over til it's over!" So I crossed my arms and decided to sit there being pissy. Well lo and behold we scrap together some hits and end up winning on an artificial turf single through the right side by Scott Bradley.
Considering the M's just pulled off an excellent win I had no problem swallowing my pride and apologizing and saying "you were right!"
Yes, I was a dumbass.
But what makes it worse is in 1988 I went to take a leak during a certain World Series game thinking "Eck's in - it's over!"
Some people never learn.
