What a night--last night--for my browser to go on the fritz.
I was thinking of Thomas Boswell, who during the majesterial 1986 post-season started one story with "In the greatest game ever played . . . unless you count the one last night . . ."
Tonight: In the most important game of the season, unless you count last night's . . .
How many times have we thought this? Ten times? Twelve?
