2003 I was at home, with my girlfriend, and her little sister + friends. So me plus 5 girls between 23-27 years old. When the final out was recorded I went outside for a run in the rain. It was not a good look. 2015 I attended a game, and watched some from bars and some from home. It was all good. I was finally an adult about it.
Hah, that's similar to my experience in 2008. Started at Murphy's, went to Redmond's for some reason, then ended up at Justin's on Southport followed by watching Soriano strike out on a pitch in the dirt from my living room.
2003 I had to work that day for the start of the game, left work when it was 2-0, heard a very grainy Pat Hughes call the wild pitch that scored a run to make it 3-0 (was living in NH at the time, could amazingly get WGN radio on clear nights), watched the 8th inning from my living room and then jumped back into my car for a quiet drive to help me come to grips with what happened. Can't remember where I was for game 7, I think I was just watching at home.
Pretty sure I watched 08 game 3 while pregaming at my friend's condo and then went to English afterward. I had already kinda been resigned to losing that series by that night.
2003 was watching at home. Even got to the point that I was pulling up tickets for the Yankees and was mapquesting the drive to New York.
