This neighborhood looked tired the morning after a game that was closing in on five hours. But the smiles still broke through because of an extra-inning victory over the Twins.
“That was a big win,” said someone hustling down the Grand Concourse.
A woman rushing to make the 2 train added:
“Things are starting to come together.”
A man waiting on the 149th Street subway platform explained:
“It wasn’t easy, but they pulled it off. I was drained just watching the game so I can’t even imagine how the players felt.
“I woke up with a hangover,” the man continued, “and I don’t even drink. I need to get some breakfast – with plenty of coffee – and I’ll be ready for today’s game. I’d love to see them win it in nine innings, but I’m willing to suffer through just about anything for a victory.”
Even another hangover.
