To be fair, none of us posted it on April 17.

Game 21: I hadn't been at my new company for a year yet, and I had to work on the weekend because a big project needing to be finished before the end of April was far from completion. My entire department was in the office that weekend. I mentioned to someone in another department that I had to give up my tickets for the Red Sox game, and she offered to buy them from me. And that's the story of the first - but not last - time I had tickets for a no-hitter but sold them to someone else.

Game 24: My friend and I considered ourselves the Mike Brown Fan Club, because we appeared to be the only two people who ever rooted for him.

I don't necessarily think they should make the list, but I noticed the coincidence that in both 2003 and 2004 during each season's respective games 21-30 stretch, they Sox won in walk-off come-from-behind fashion versus the Royals with Varitek at the plate and Mike MacDougal taking the loss (although he was removed before the last batter in both games). I was at one of them, I think the 2004 one.

So many great names in this series. Gary Allenson, Todd Benzinger, Bob Stanley! Thanks for this, Jose. I hope you and all of the rest of our Therapudians are staying safe and healthy.

Oh and I'm still not sure if Kevin Kennedy was a good or bad manager, but he kept things interesting.

Thanks. Yeah it's been fun to look back at some of these games. In a perfect world I'd hunt these games down on YouTube but I suspect a lot of them aren't available). The names are definitely a hoot.

And yes indeed best to all.
