This game is going to last two hours ...

... to get to the ninth inning, that is. After that, there will be extra innings. The extra innings will also take two hours. Then there will be a break for dinner. Then it will keep going, perpetually, forever waiting for someone to score the first run. The first run will never come.

The world will move on. The outside world will lurch forward, with change being the only constant. Countries will rise and fall, leaders will come and go. Technology will get the outside world in trouble, save the world from trouble, and get it right back in trouble again.

But inside Yankee Stadium, the game will go on, an unending curiosity for people who want a portal into the way the world used to be. It will be a living museum.

"Take me to Yankee Stadium, Parent-Clone 4! I want to see the Eternal Playoff Game!"

In other news, there still isn't any scoring in Game 1. This might still be Game 5 of the ALDS. I don't even know anymore.
