I didn't watch the game tonight, because it was the 2 hour Dancing With the Stars 100th Show Extravaganza. Which is a little embarrassing to type, but whatever. I have my reasons.
I had intended watch the game later, so I hid my phone, avoided peeking at scores online during commercial breaks, etc.
But just before I was set to sit down and watch it, I checked the Indiana primary results, and accidentally saw a headline about Floyd almost having a no-hitter. So......nevermind.
I almost feel bad for Floyd for missing out on it. (Almost.) I'd probably even nominate him for cross-franchise hug....except I'm still pretty creeped out by the Blow-up-Gate Scandal. (God only knows where his hands have been.) I was so, SO not surprised to see that Nick Swisher seems to have been one of the instigators. Trashy, gross, vulgar, offensive....with just a dash of certifiable insanity. Yes, this little stunt has "Nick Swisher" written ALL over it.
And since I don't really feel bad for Gavin Floyd, a hug and a pat on the head to Joe Mauer for ruining his night. Good job, Joe!
