A very public humiliation disappointment

Reuters, via Yahoo! reports:

Citing data from Nielsen Media Research, Fox, a unit of News Corp. Ltd., said [Game 7] was the most-watched league championship game on any night, on any network, in 12 years. It also drew higher ratings than 24 of the last 27 World Series games.

The game had a 28 percent share of the national household audience. In the New York market the share was 49 percent and in Boston, which has not won a World Series since 1918, the share reached 73 percent.

You were humiliated?

Man, you've been living in New Hampshire too long. My heart got tapdanced all over again by the world's greatest (Mom alert! Bad word to follow) cocktease. The Sox are soooo good at making you think they're gonna put out and give it to you, but it's always nothing but foreplay.

But having said that (sorry, Mrs. Hodgson), they played well this year. I missed a lot of work seeing those 12 games. Living in Cali makes you appreciate the times you can see the guys on TV, so it was a great pleasure to keep coming home from work early to watch a game. They fought a good fight -- I loved their courage in Game 6, and they came close.

But humiliated? I don't understand that at all.
Humilation is when you are an experienced Rally participant, and some bunch of rookies goes to the last rally of the season, and the four fools take third place while you and your cousin who ended up at Univ of Lowell are out of the trophy range. That's humiliation.
