Thought it might be fun to share some stories of the extra inning or just plain old long games we've personally attended. The inspiration to start this diary was from Wednesday's game thread which fell into that conversation.
Anyway, I went to a game last year (my first at the new Busch) against the Dodgers which lasted 15 innings and Pujols won it with a walk-off home run. The length of the game was increased when there was a brief rain delay. It was a unique experience because I sat by a nice family from California on vacation to see their cardinals play. That's right, they weren't dodger fans! It was fun to hear their perspective of the game, especially the father, he said in the ninth inning with the game still tied "I hope this game goes all night." And I understood because coming from the west coast, he wasn't all that tired yet.
Another shorter game was in Phoenix to see my second favorite team the D-Backs face the Yankees (I believe two or three years ago) the game went into the 13 in which the D-Backs won with a walk off home run from Juan Brito. However, while the game ended at midnight, it was more like 2 in the morning central, so being from Illinois, I was tired. But it was all worth it because I got to meet Gonzo before the game :]
