ALCS Game 1, 'Kudos & Wet Willies'

I have to admit I was sitting there in my chair Friday night when the eighth inning started and I did not think I would be handing out many 'Kudos' today.

Why would I, with the Yankees trailing, 5-1, and looking as if they would go quietly in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. Ah, but these are the Yankees. With those 27 World Series titles, including one last season, to fall back on. And these are the Texas Rangers, who have never been in this situation before.

So, of course, the Yankees made more postseason magic, coming back to win, 6-5. Thus, a much different 'Kudos & Wet Willies' than I thought I would be writing. Let's get started.
