It hit me tonight as Votto rounded the bases....this is really happening. The Reds aren't going to fade. The Cardinals aren't going to catch us.
I'm not even worried about jinxing us by typing these words anymore. It became real clear to me tonight....we're gonna do it.
I was about 30 minutes behind on my DVR, but the good news is that after the HR, I was able to rewind and watch it again....and then again....and then I got my wife from the other room and had her watch it....again. My daughter had just fallen asleep so I couldn't get loud, but I did pump my fist and kept screaming "YES" in my head.
It's like a release of a decade+ of frustration. It's awesome.
You can thank my beard come October
