We were fortunate to score tickets to last night's play-in game between the Sox and Twins. John Danks pitched a gem of a game: a two-hit, eight-inning performance that had the "piranhas" stymied. I don't know how the "blackout" looked on television, but in person it was nothing short of mesmerizing. I did see at least four fans who made the unfortunate decision to paint their faces black; no one ever said common sense and sports mix well.
The win marks the first time since 1906 that both the White Sox and Cubs were in the playoffs together. Regardless of where your allegiance lies, this is an amazing thing to savor.
