I don’t know. I played in one of those games and stood on the sidelines for at least three others, when they used to play them down here at the home field of whichever team had the best record. It was pretty magical to look up and feel like every person you cared about in the universe was watching you and your teammates take part in this contest.

On the other other hand, we lost.
