5-19-08: Another No Hitter

I remember last September watching Clay Buchholz make history, and really thought I witnessed something special.

Then tonight happened. Same venue. Same result. Different pitcher.

Jon Lester, who has already been crowned a hero after recovering from cancer to win the deciding Game 4 of the 2007 World Series, became a part of an exclusive club by pitching a no-hitter against the Kansas City Royals tonight. It was a really special moment, and I'm really happy for the guy. I know I'm just a fan, and it's just a game, but sometimes it's more. Tonight is one of those moments where it means more than just balls and strikes.

Awesome job, Jon.
