The only thing that keeps my spirits up regarding the Rays, the only sparkle that keeps me affixed to my television set is this: A one-game lead. They still have a coin flip chance to reach the real playoffs if they can just cling onto this one game lead.

Its a narrow, dull light, but I would not be much of a fan if I didn't treasure it.
