Welcome to the first of two very special throwback games. We'll be celebrating one of my favorite words of all time with our friends from Red Reporter. That word is "schadenfreude", and it's a German word which roughly translates to "pleasure derived from the misfortune of others".
This week, our friends at RR will be enjoying the failure of the Cubs. Next week, we'll enjoy watching the Yankees lose to the Dbacks in the final game of the 2001 World Series. Please note that both of these games are considered to be among the greatest 20 baseball games ever played, according to MLB.com. So, let's enjoy them!
Next, we need to be watching at the same time. So, go to this website: Atomic Clock, NY
Open the video, pause it, resize it to fit nicely on your screen. Do the same with the throwback gamethread. Then, get ready. At exactly 9 PM EST on the time and date website, hit play on your youtube video. We'll now be watching at the exact same time! And, if anything bad happens to your video, or you need to reboot, no problem. Just re-open the video, and skip to the appropriate time. For example, at 9:15 PM EST, we'll all be exactly 15 minutes into the file. Easy, right?
