I’m not really a Tigers fan. More of an anti-Yankee fan.
I was there in person for Game 2 of the Diamondbacks / Yankees series in 2001. Saw Ray Charles sing “America the Beautiful“, then watched Randy Johnson shut ’em down 4 – 0.
I just about threw up watching BK Kim serve up late inning game-losing homers in subsequent games.
The the thrashing in game 6 followed by what may be the best single game in series history capped off of course by Gonzo’s series winning hit in the bottom of the ninth. Makes me tear up just thinking about it.
