I probably should have written my First Pitch article tonight before a bottle of champagne and six beers. But honestly there are so many thoughts tonight on the streak that I don’t know what I’d write here. So be sure to check out the short game recap from win number 82 tonight. Then check out this 8000+ word post recapping all of the big events from the streak.

Also, below are the other links. Check back tomorrow morning for a great article from Wilbur Miller on how this year’s team was built. Also, I’m going to be adding links to articles about the streak from other sites as they are posted.
