The other night, I actually witnessed the longest playoff game in major league baseball history between the San Francisco Giants and the Washington Nationals. The game ended in the bottom of the 18th and lasted a long time. Of course I did not sit through the whole game, but I caught it to the end. Playoffs seem to bring out the best in sports and this game resembles this type of thinking. As a player, I do not know how anyone is able to play hard all the way through 18 innings in one game, but it was incredible to witness the longest game being played.
