We'll be seeing that Aaron Rowand catch off of Xavier Nady for years to come. DAMN!!!
March 4, 2011
People don't remember that Rowand's catch actually ended the game. I remember driving up (from Baltimore) in a pouring rain, getting to the game knowing it was just a matter of time before the rain would come. When the Mets were threatening in that inning, and knowing the rain was seconds away, I just remember thinking that if the Mets take the lead, they won't win (because the game would not be official), they just won't lose either. About 90 seconds after the catch, there was so much rain you wouldn't believe it. But I do remember that, when Aaron Rowand walked off the field, even Mets fans gave him a hand. That's just one of the ways I know that Mets fans are better than Phillies fans.
Or maybe not. I'm getting forgetful in my old age. Still a helluva catch.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
