Oh I would have been saying out loud from the Ellsbury catch onward to anyone who would listen: "Hey, Lester's working on a no hitter...you think he can do it?", just to see the reactions I'd get.

Has anyone in here ever watched a no-hitter in person? I have seen someone win their 300th game, I've seen the Yanks win the WS twice in person, but never have I been lucky enough to witness a no-hitter in person.

No, but I'm hoping to one day be lucky enough to see a douche bag STFU.

As confirmed by the cocksuckers on Sportscenter.
He would have had 5 if Curt Schilling hadn't shaken him off in Oakland last year.

I think the rarest thing I saw was the Twinkies turning not one, but two triple plays at Fenway in the same game.
I also saw Fred Patek hit 3 HR's in the same game at Fenway, which was impressive for a guy 3'2" and 44lbs.

no... i tend to have a bad effect on historic moments. i've seen two-homer days from mcgwire and bonds both, but that doesn't have the same ring to it as it would have if not for the whole steroid mumbo-jumbo.

i saw endy chavez's catch, which would have gone down as one of the greatest catches of all time if not for beltran's inability to lift the bat from his shoulder.

i was also lucky enough to see glavine the start after he got 300. nothing like checking out a pitcher go for his 301st career win!

that's... um... that's about it. i guess the most impressive thing i've seen live is dae sung koo's double off of randy johnson. that was awesome.

Add in near misses for Pedro and Wakefield, and he would have been way up there.

Although come to think of it, he probably wouldn't have been the catcher for Wakefield.

Saw racist Bill Singer's (Dodgers) no-no in the late 60's at Dodger stadium. Think it was against the Phillies.

April 27, 2003. Veterans Stadium. Kevin Millwood vs. San Francisco. I believe the Phils won 1-0 on a Ricky Ledee solo shot. I sat in the 700 level.

I'm hoping a douche bag doesn't run away for months at a time, too, but we can't all get what we want.
