it's 3-0 Red Sox in the third inning. Game over. This Reds team is terrible. What a total waste of talent.

Perez just hit Lee's blooper pitch about ten miles!

That is some seriously aggressive baserunning by Pete Rose, going first to third on Red Sox golden boy Fred Lynn.
Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.

Being the gloomy Gus I can be, when the Reds were down 3-0, I thought they were toast.
If Lee hadn't thrown that doofus pitch, this could have been just another WS failure for the not so Big Red Machine-era Reds.
The winds of fate can be capricious. They blew our way this time.
When Bernie Carbo juuuuuust barely fouls off strike 3 in the bottom of the 8th with 2 outs, I thought Eastwick would get him for sure. And then, wham, Carbo ties it up with a 3 run homer. It was defintely a real "oh crap" moment. When Fisk hit his GW homer, I was ready to slit my wrists.
The next day, I had both a mental and physical hangover and thought a game 7 Reds loss was a foregone conclusion. When they won, it was a "I can't believe this" moment. Kinda like when OSU won the 2002 NC game, they snatched victory from the jaws of seemingly sure defeat.
Well, I was a whopping 6 years old at the time and full of unbridled optimism. I was just sure that the Reds were going to win. That's just what they did; they won games. My parents were the ones who were sweating it out. When Perez went deep I gave my dad an I told you so look.
Read Joe Posnanski's book about the BRM. Pete was pacing the dugout challenging every single player on the team, cussing them out, insulting them, doing whatever he could to get them fired up. Then Tony hit his homer, and everything clicked. Kind of like Eric Davis' blast in the '90 series.
