"K" Is For Kerry

If you like baseball then you owe it to yourself to check this out:

It's the highlights of Kerry Wood's 20 strike-out game, which happened 10 years ago, today. I wish I had watched it live, because that is some really sick stuff - he was still throwing in the upper 90's consistently back then, and that curve/slider had a ton of sharp, late break. It didn't look like the ump had too big of a strike-zone, and the one hit he gave up could have been called an error (and may have been if it had happened later in the game). It was probably the most dominant pitching performance in history - 1 H, 0 BB, 20 K, and the hitters had absolutely no chance.
