In an effort to sprinkle a bit of happiness back into a tense day here in Philadelphia, today is the one-year anniversary of Roy Halladay's postseason no-hitter against the Reds.
What a magical night that was. The utter domination. The pinpoint control. The drama of the final out. You just kind of felt after that game that this pitcher and this team were destined for truly great things in the postseason. That idea didn't work out too well, but Halladay's legacy was secured nonetheless. A perfect game and a postseason no-hitter in the same year. An NL Cy Young Award to boot. And he can take that legacy a step further - a big step further - with a strong performance tomorrow night in a do-or-die showdown in South Philly.
In case you want to take a walk down memory lane, here is last year's Oct. 6 game thread.
In case you prefer to live in the present, here is a story about the Game 5 "dream matchup."
And in case you would rather live in some fantasy world where squirrels have 10,000 Twitter followers, well, you're in luck.
