In the ninth innning of Sunday's Sox win, Scott Podsednik at the plate, Joe Buck says to Tim McCarver, "You know, Tim, a lot of people thought Garner should have put Lidge into game six of the NLCS, just to get the taste of that Pujols home run out of his mouth. What do you think?"

"Well, Joe, I don't think that taste is there."

But right around the time McCarver said "taste," the ballgame was ending as Podsednik's homer cleared the right field wall.

Maybe that taste is there after all? Tastes a bit coppery, like blood.

It was indeed a great moment for baseball. When it comes to cocky pontifications being proven wrong with immediate, horrific results, it was right up there with Custer saying "Indians? Ha!", Wesley saying "R.O.U.S.'s? I don't think they exist" and Dick Cheney saying just about anything having to do with Iraq.
I almost called you as soon as that happened. But I need to buy gas this week and turn the heat on, so I couldn't afford it. I did think about you when that happened, though.
Ah, the taste if blood! What a symphony it plays on my tongue!
