full count with 2 outs in the 9th and…

Had the Red Sox-Yankees game on, and just before what could have been the game-winning pitch, Fox switches to Nascar.
Of course, my first immediate concern was getting reconnected to some kind of live coverage. First stop, mlb.com .

Not surprisingly (but still to my dismay), I got this when clicking gameday

RedSox-Gameday


At the time, I didn’t even think of radio. I don’t really have an am/fm receiver in the house other than the Net

Next stop was tweetscan.com . At first search I was able to immediately commiserate with other fans and upon refresh a few seconds later, got news of the final out.

Not quite the same as hearing the crowd roar and collectively hold its breath with each pitch, but compelling in it own way.

 Two minutes later, I returned to mlb.com and found this graphic of the last at bat.

This picture is easily worth a thousand words… and could support a variety of language learning possibilities.

Was working on the graphics unit for Media Week in EFL537 earlier this evening and still need to put together something on social media. This little episode has provided some useful demo material for both.
