Metaphor Alert

The Red Sox beat the Yankees yesterday, 9 to 8, in ten innings. Shank had a lot of fun writing about it:
NEW YORK — Was it 2003 or 2004?

Was it Grady or Tito?

Quintin Berry or Dave Roberts?

Mariano Rivera or Mariano Rivera?

Alfonso Soriano or Bonehead Merkle?

Tim Wakefield, Keith Foulke, or Koji Uehara?

The high-flying Red Sox came to the Large Apple Thursday night and we saw a regular-season game for the ages. Absolutely everything happened. In the end, the hardball gods were with the Sox, just as they have been all season. Soriano ran the Yankees out of an inning, Cowboy Joe West blew a call, Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino got the big hits, and Uehara was perfect again. Oh, and the son of a former Red Sox outfielder couldn’t handle a throw from Ichiro, which allowed the winning run to score.
I'm guessing flashback...
