This is why we watch sports, isn't it?

Kerry Wood's final (?) appearance has already become a baseball legend, a moment that's up there with Gehrig and Yaz Day, but with so much more precious importance. Here was a man who could have, maybe should have, been the best righthander since his idol Roger Clemens, in his final moment of glory, going down with the strikeout for which he is most known. And in an instant - a 95-mile-per-hour fastball moment - Wood went from what defined and meant so much to him in his career to what defines and means so much to him in life.

That's why we love baseball, right?
