Yes. Agree 100%.
Funny story. And I think you'll afterwards agree only 99.9%.
A couple of summers ago, some buddies and I went to a Brooklyn Cyclones (Mets Single A affiliate) playoff game. They play a short season so it was early September, probably. The game was scheduled to start at 7, I think. Either 6 or 7. But it was delayed for about an hour and a half because of a downpour. The rain finally lets up, they start playing, and in the 5th inning it starts raining again
. This time the game is delayed for about 45 minutes. Rain clears again and the teams go back onto the field. By this time, most of the crowd is gone and with the Cyclones you can always find a seat anywhere anyway, so we're sitting about 4 or 5 rows from the field, about 6' to the right of home plate. In the 6th inning it's a tie game but a runner gets on. And this runner is someone known to be fast. So the pitcher is throwing over to first. And again. And again. Pitches one to the batter. Back to first. Back to first. Back to first. At this point, it's about 11:30pm and this kid, who was probably about 7 and sitting 2 rows ahead of us, screams as loud as he could at the pitcher, "Hurry up!!! It's a school night
My buddies and I cracked up the rest of the game.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
