What’s the score?!?
October 14, 1992
Here’s my recap of the story. I was attending school in Nyack, NY. The game was on in the main hall of the dorm. Instead of watching it, I decided to head to the music practice rooms with Dottie to, um, practice. Yeah.. That’s what it’s called. Before walking out of the dorm, I checked the score pirates were winning. Cool. They win this game and they’re headed to the World Series.
Dottie and I ‘practiced’ and when I got back to the dorm, the entire place was quiet. I thought they were Pirates haters and weren’t happy that they won.
“What’s the score?” I asked.
“Braves 3, Pirates 2, Game over”.
I was shocked, stunned. It was like someone kicked my grandmother down a flight of stairs.
Still to this day, I will never forget that night. Still to this day, when someone asks “What’s the score?” My gut instinct replies…
“Braves 3, Pirates 2”
To this day, they have not had a winning season since.
