Got to watch the final two pitches via NBC's live feed on the web.  What a treat to watch live such a historic event.

...I had to be somewhere just as they were finishing and missed it live! It was pretty awesome what I was able to see. Quite the accomplishment! Kudos! Our sport continues to advance in ways I never thought it would when I started over 30 years ago.

LOL, that is a great clip... Having read much about Harding when I was starting out I have never seen live footage of him... it fit my mental image of him perfectly. And how times are the same :)
