Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

July 21, 2009 | Glenn Clark

It was funny to see the angry reactions from fans watching last night’s game while I was poking around Facebook and Twitter. Funny mostly because I honestly was completely emotionless when I saw Hideki Matsui crush the game winner. I basically just expected it.

Hard to get angry when you’re watching your favorite team play a team that is plainly better than them.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say……
