Take me out to the zzzzzzzzzzz...

It took 4 hours, 43 minutes for the Yankees and Red Sox to play a nine-inning baseball game tonight. Five games that started a full hour later managed to finish before the game ended at Fenway. The Braves and Nationals, despite a late start due to a rain delay, were in the 12th inning at Washington when New York's Mariano Rivera struck out Boston's Jacoby Ellsbury to finally put out of their misery anyone watching this game drone on and on. It was two minutes short of the record for a nine-inning game. That record was set way back in August 2006. By the Yankees and Red Sox. -- Joe Guckin
