The Rays Tank: Courtesy of, The Rays Tank

Elimination games? No big deal.

I believe I can fly. To ice cream.

I threatened to solely post a photo of ice cream as the Tank on Twitter...




Instead, I'm posting three shots.

Bonus tasty treat? Tonight's game four at the Trop.

Hellboy vs. Peavy. Let's keep hope alive and wish vintage Jeremy to take the mound.

But last night, victory was as sweet as Lobey's postgame ice cream, courtesy of that walk off homer. Not to mention the guy in the Dan Johnson jersey right next to the tank; oh Great Pumpkin, you're with us always.

Jose's thoughts after all the commotion?

"If I keep hitting," he quipped, "I'm gonna get fat." Several moments later, he was standing in an empty clubhouse, wearing a Bob Marley t-shirt, and wondering why he didn't get 20 treats this time.

Also, that rumor of a Boston fan taking an actual devil ray for a postgame swim around the Trop? Apparently untrue.

For the full recap, with more substance than some delicious photos of ice cream, Gareth provided a detailed rundown with some valuable commentary.

We're waiting, Puig and CC. Go Rays.
