I was at that loss as well. I had tickets to the Lowe and Buchholz no-hitters, but was unable to go to either. The Mussina one-hitter was the closest I've ever come to a no-hitter.

I was also intending to go to the doubleheader vs. the A's, and drove with the kids from CT all the way up to Boston. The weather was so bad that it took the whole first game for us to get up there. Then we just drove around downtown Boston and Charlestown waiting to find out if they were going to cancel the 2nd game. At some point the three of us decided to give up and go home because no sane person would allow the 2nd game to start. I don't recall regretting the decision.

Barf, a Yankee one-hitter at fenway. If you put something like Jeter's last game on here I'll quit Sox Therapy!

I’m not giving away anything but you guys should have a pretty good guess of what game 162 is going to be. Hint, it ain’t 2011.

FWIW Nate that is one of my favorite nights at the ballpark ever. An evening with a good friend, great baseball, big stage, it was just a really enjoyable evening.

Even including the outcome, game 162 in 2011 is the 2nd-most enjoyable live baseball experience I've had.

Surely 162 should be 1967? I know you don't go back that far, but Lonborg winning and Yaz clinching the pennant must surely be #1? Don't remember a subsequent pennant being that close -- and anyway the modern ones aren't real pennants, whereas 1967 was.

That's understandable. I had fun watching a young Felix Hernandez masterfully 1-hit and dominant Sox lineup at Fenway in '07.

No Karl, not 1967. It's a game in the era I'm using and a game I was in attendance for.

Ooh, I have an idea for Game 162. Did it feature a short-lived legend?

Bruno!

For some reason I thought that game wasn't the very last. My guess was going to be Yaz' farewell game.
