Don't give up

Two little words for you: walk-off.

And Papi? What is there left to say about Papi? Bottom of the ninth, down to his last strike and he hits it over the fence. I was too busy jumping around to catch all of Don's home run call, but it sounded to me like: "How many times can you go to the well?" Damn good question. This guy is un-be-friggin'-lie-va-ble...
