Based on Coney looking red faced at the end there, and knowing his history of red-assitude, wonder what he was up to in that scrum.

Also, loved Brosius not fighting Benitez, then slowly taking down Harold Baines at the top of the dugout....'SCRUMMMMMM!'

It's the only deserved sucker punch ever caught on video.

right at about the 59 second mark you can see my fiancee's 8 month pregnant, softball pitching coach pounding on the top of the dugout and screaming obscenities (neon green t-shirt).

Remember how this was like 2 days after Wells' perfect game? Which was the weekend Sinatra died and you couldn't go 5 feet without hearing "New York, New York." That was a draining few days.
