Paramedics hauled somebody out on a stretcher near us.  It was in the early innings, too.

Was not me, thank goodness.

ETA: I do not have heart disease in my family and never any hint of heart issues myself, so the sensations I was experiencing were unsettling to say the least.

The emotional roller coaster was extreme. The Dodgers took the crowd out of it early, then Yuli’s blast got it rocking again. Bellinger’s homer put the lid back on, then Altuve’s answering homer tore it off again. On and on it went back and forth like a tennis match between elite players. I was exhausted, and for real and for awhile, I feared I was experiencing a very untimely cardiac event. I do not know if I scared Mark, but I was seriously alarmed. We got back to where we were staying about 1:40 am and stayed up for more than an hour reading and talking about the game. Mark kept saying “It does not seem real.” I did not sleep a wink until we left at 6 am to get Mark back home for work.

What a game! Such a memorable experience for me made better because Mark was there too.

I would've been a lot more alarmed if I hadn't gone through that same feeling 2-3 times already during the game.

When Altuve hit his home run, I had to sit down for a few seconds. I literally yelled myself out of oxygen, then forgot how to breathe for about 5 seconds. I had a really pretty black fireworks show happening before I realized I was in a bit of distress.

Never got that bad for me but I did get light headed a few times.

And my heart rate is already high today.

Turns out I was in the section just in front of you and Jim.  Sorry I missed a chance to meet you guys (and BG at the ALDS G2, and all the other OWAers).

If I had a doctor's appointment today, I would have rescheduled.  No way I'd let someone take my blood pressure today (or any game day at this point).

If he PBPs an Astros clincher, he can own the whole goddamn web site.

I don't need another website to manage..   You guys do a great job.
