World Series Game 3: Tale of the (Trick or) Tweets
Once again, here are all my tweets from World Series Game 3 on Halloween night. I did not travel to Philadelphia (though many people thought I would make the easy trip down the turnpike).
Instead, I watched at Blondie’s on the Upper West Side with a great group of Yankee fans, including @rebecca_glass, @stefmara, @schwartzslaw, @bkabak, @larry_koestler, @emmaspan and @sarapepitone. If you want to see pictures from the evening, they’re up on Flickr. Nothing too incriminating. The most popular costume on this Halloween was “Yankee fan”.
I provide the same disclaimer on this recurring feature. This is not about a recap or analysis. If you’re looking for that, I commend you to many of the other Yankees blogs that can provide that, including This Purist Wears Pinstripes, River Avenue Blues (recap courtesy of Ben Kabak) and Yankeeist. I do this tweet recap more for myself to memorialize the “of the moment” thoughts, but you fine folks seem to enjoy it as well.
In terms of the game, it was a typical Yankees win. Down early, but gritty pitching from Andy after a rough start and home runs from A-Rod (his first World Series home run, not without controversy, of course), Swisher and Matsui, got us the lead. The great Mariano Rivera retired the last two Phillies, including Jimmy Rollins to end it. Oh, and the Yankees now have a 2-1 series lead.
Without further ado, I present World Series Game 3: Tale of the Tweets.

Entire bar is chanting “Home run! Home run! Home run!”
So A-Rod has only hit 6 home runs this post season? What has he done for us lately?
Gee. Who could it be? RT @bkabak So what idiot decided to put a camera hanging over the field in play in fair territory anyway?
That was pretty freakin’ Awesome Andy.
Damn. Cole Hamels folding like a cheap tent.
