May 20 was a red-letter day for this years Arizona Diamondbacks team red meaning scarlet.
Up to that point, the young D-Backs were 27-16, the toast of the baseball world, and poised to lock up the National League West crown. In May. Then came 5/20, Miami, and that friggin humidity. Our dry-heat heroes deflated like a bouffant in a downpour.
The final score that day was a slim 2-3 in favor of the Florida Marlins, but the loss led to a series sweep by the Fins and two months of freefall, including another road series loss to the Pisces in June. Grrrr.
Well, break out the tartar sauce, cause the Gill Breathers are comin to our house for a three-game Fish fry.
