I see on Twitter that lots of folks whose opinions I respect are calling last night's World Series game a "classic." While it obviously was a heartbreaker for my biased self, I have to agree. Strategy, drama, weird plays, heroic feats (especially by injured stars), comebacks galore, and ultra-tense extra innings -- while Game 6 of the 1975 Series remains The One Against Which All Others Must Be Compared, 2011's Game 6 will be remembered as one of the best. With the obvious exception of all the inexplicable errors by both teams, this was a baseball fan's dream game. ... And this bleary-eyed Rangers fan hopes Game 7 will also be similar to its 1975 counterpart -- meaning the visitors who lost Game 6 on an extra-inning home run will bounce back and take home the title.
