There were a lot of firsts in the world of sports this week. In the first game of the world series, the Kansas City Royals beat the New York Mets in Kansas Tuesday night. It was was the longest first game in a World Series — the first to last 14 innings, and five hours.
Also, the Boston Celtics will play the first game of their new season against the Philladelphia 76ers Wednesday night.
And, let's not forget about soccer: the New England Revolution plays D.C. United Wednesday in the first round of the Major League Soccer playoffs.
- "The team opens its season Wednesday night, beginning its third season since trading away aging Boston icons Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett."
- "Mets Manager Terry Collins went on the field to alert umpires to the absence of replay in his team’s clubhouse; Joe Torre, M.L.B.’s chief baseball officer, learned that both teams were without replay. The teams agreed that they would continue without video replay until the system was fixed."
- "D.C. are 2-6-1 in their last nine regular-season games, and have only two wins over playoff teams since mid-May. New England have won just once in their last five, and haven't posted a shutout since early September."
