Giving away hope

  The worst part about the Yankees loss yesterday was that now the Angels will always have the hope that they can come back and win. Before this game, the Yankee bullpen was thought to be untouchable, excepting for the manager's errors. Now only Rivera is untouchable. I sufferred the same fate at our chess club yesteraday, losing a tournament game to a kid who I outrated by 400 points. Now he will always know he can beat me. I have given him hope that he can beat me any time. It will take a lot of hard work to extinguish hope now that the flame is lit.
