    I just screamed so loud I scared my dog!

    My wife said, "I thought you didn't like the Astros."

    I said, "I don't: I hate the Yanks!"

    Life is sweet here in Houston.

    I can at least live with them fighting back to tie the game and then losing. That LaMahieu at bat was one of the best I can remember, unfortunately it will just be a footnote for this game.

    They deserve it:

    NFL Championships:

    13 Green Bay
    9 Chicago
    8 NY Giants
    6 New England, Pittsburgh
    5 Washington, Dallas, San Fransisco
    4 Cleveland, Balt/Indy, Philly, Detroit
    3 Rams, Denver, Raiders
    2 Cards, Ravens, Seattle, KC, NY Jets, TB, NO
    0 Vikes, Bills, Bengals, Panthers, Falcons, Chargers, Titans, Jags, Texans

    13 wins are more than the bottom 17 teams combined! It's also more than the 3rd and 4th place teams (NE 6+ Pitt 6)

    Winning 13 out of 18 trips to the final game is a .722 winning %.
    (4 wins or more only)
    .833 SF
    .750 Pitt
    .722 GB
    .667 DET
    .625 Dal
    .545 NE

    The Pats have had a very nice run, recently: 6 championships in an 18 years span.

    The 49'ers won 5 in 14 years.

    The Steelers won 4 in 6 years.

    The Lions won 3 in 6 years.

    The Browns made it to the final game in 6 straight years and 7 of 8 but won just 3.

    The Pack probably had the nicest dynasty by winning 5 in 7 years ('61-'67) and made it to the final game in 6 of 8 seasons ('60-'68).

    The Packers also dominated from 1929 to 1944, winning 6 in those 16 years (better than the Pats 6 in 18), and they made the final game in 9 of 18 years ('27-'44).

    Some more ancient history: from 1920 to 1946 (27 years) these 3 teams made the finals this many times:

    15 Chi (7 wins)
    11 NYG (3 wins)
    9 GB (6 wins)

    35 Total (16 wins)
    65% of the finals' teams were these 3!
    59% of the championships were these 3!

    A-Rod just said that this is the first decade that the Yankees haven't played in a World Series game since 1910. Is that true? I don't remember anymore.

    Two very good teams who in the end played a very good series. I agree with tyderD that last night's winner was likely to win the WS. Thanks largely to a 7-0 margin in game 1, the Yankees were only outscored in the ALCS by 1 run.

    Yeah, bad play by Judge, but I think pitching to Altuve in the 9th with 2 outs and defensive replacement coming to the plate was the big mistake.

    I'm not sure the 4-0 sweep in the NLCS is an advantage for the Nationals. Perhaps the opposite. I remember the Rockies in 2007 who swept everyone the got swept by the WS, but I don't remember the AL team who did that.

    Championships or Super Bowls? 2 Different things. I think the Pats got the Packers beat in Championships too, its close. Going by SB's Packers got 4, since 1966. Pats got 6 since 2001.
    No team has ever been more dominating, that long. Maybe the Canadiens or Celtics, and Yankees.
    Not in the NFL.
    And the run continues, and with Belichick it probably will keep continuing. Pats don't need 1 person to win games in a team sport.
    2 different eras back in the old days of winning Championships, how many teams then? How many Games played in a season? No Play-offs. Old days they played 2 or 3 Months, then go to other job. Todays Players do it 365 days a year.
    Much, much tougher today, to win a SB.
    Salary Cap is HUGE, and you cant compare teams that could hold onto a Player for his entire Career. Today every year teams change Rosters.
    Patriots are the most dominating Team ever, in the NFL. Case closed.
    You want to say they are in a weak division, OK.
    Except before this year they are 134-44 (.753 winning %) against everyone outside the division. Since BB took over team.

    Great game to watch, but much too much stress for a playoff game that didn't involve the Red Sox. LOL

    I'd kind of like to see the Nats win, but I'm good with either team winning.

    Happy Yankees Elimination Day 2019! The Yankees have played 10 seasons without a trip to the World Series. Next season is year 20 and $4 billion spent on payroll to win 1 championship. Brian Cashman is the torchbearer and model for front office stability. #moneyball

    This is true--I've heard it more than once now. Brian Cashman outspends just about every team in MLB over the past decade and yet doesn't have one W.S. game to show for it. That's pathetic.

    The silver lining for Yankees fans: the Nats would have kicked the Yankees ass all over the place and so getting past the Astros wouldn't have delivered a championship. Although, it would have ended an embarrassing drought.
