I began watching tonight’s game in the fourth inning and the Braves were in the lead with 3 to the Astros’ 0. It still felt like either team could win it until sometime in the sixth inning when the Braves increased their lead to 6. By the seventh inning, when that score went up again to 7, the probability of the Astros tying the game decreased significantly. It felt a bit like being a football fan and knowing that the team you’re cheering for is going to win because they’re up by at least two touchdowns and maybe a field goal and there’s only two minutes left in the fourth quarter.
It feels so good to see other people that excited and euphoric.
