Weird conversation.

I don’t really keep up on the Red Sox (there are different degrees of “fandom”, but that’s a topic for another day). I happened to have seen that they were tied 6-6 at the end of the ninth Saturday night. Curious, I looked up the final score when I got home and the Red Sox won 12-6.


I figured when people talked about the game, I’d be ready to throw out a random fact in an effort to sound like I was in the inner-most circle of fandom. Yesterday I had the chance when some friends were talking about the win and I said “amazing that they got six runs to win it in extra innings”.

Guy: What inning was that?

Me: Um, the last inning?

I should have paid attention to all of the information when I checked on the game, all I knew is that it was past the ninth inning. And I’m still not sure if he was quizzing me to see how much I knew or if he really wanted to know the info.
