Before the fried chicken and beer story broke, before the Terry Franconca bullshit was revealed, before the "rat in the clubhouse" spilled his guts...there was this.
If they had won that game, everything would be different today. EVERYTHING. They would have tied the Tampon Bay Rays for the Wild Card. Who knows if they would have won the one game playoff or not. Who knows if they would have been bounced in the first round of the playoffs.
Either way, Im sure the shit show that ensued wouldnt have happened if they had beat the Orioles on that fateful day. But if my aunt had a dick, she'd by my uncle. So whatever.
