Here is my spoiled Yankees fan admission: I remember almost nothing about the 1999 World Series. Most fans will remember pretty much everything about a recent World Series win — I could give you a game-by-game recap of the 1996 and 2009 World Series no problem, 1998 and 2001 would be a bit more difficult but still doable — but nothing about that 1999 series sticks out to me. Apparently Chuck Knoblauch hit a game-tying homer off Tom Glavine in the eighth inning at some point. That’s … neat. I’m embarrassed.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The Tigers and Athletics are wrapping up their ALDS with Game 5, which starts at 8pm ET and can be seen on TBS (Justin Verlander vs. Sonny Gray). Giants-Bears is the Thursday night NFL game while the Rangers are the only hockey local in action. Lots of fun stuff tonight. Talk about all of it and more here.
