Jonathan Papelbon doesn't have a problem with the length of Sox-Yanks games. Check it out:
“Have you ever gone to watch a movie and thought, ‘Man, this movie is so good I wish it would have never ended.’ That’s like a Red Sox-Yankees game,” Papelbon said. “Why would you want it to end?”
Asked about having to potentially watch a movie in 30-degree temperatures, the closer offered a solution, simply saying, “Bundle up and drink beer.”
I'm going to confess something I've never had the courage to admit to my hyper-masculine friends: Braveheart was two battles too long. Also, William Vollmann needs an editor, and if you're watching a movie that's over three hours long, you're generally dealing with an overindulgent director who could have cut a lot more. Paul Thomas Anderson's best movie is probably the one that was just a little under 2 hours.
We're getting older here at yfsf, and I think I speak for all of us when I declare that Yanks-Sox games need to be shortened. After all, the longer these games go, the shorter out lives will be. Who can handle 4 straight hours of stress 19 times a year?! These past ten years have likely taken ten years off my life. I was looking forward to those diapered years.
So how do we correct the situation? Any ideas?
