The New York Times introduces us to Lobsang Sangay with a profile that starts with him reminiscing about game 7 of the 2003 ALCS - and the lessons he took away from Grady Little's decision to leave Martinez in the game:
Behind his desk, a magnificent life-size, silk-draped photograph of the Dalai Lama hangs from the wall, and outside his window, the Himalayas rise like a great wall into the mist.
Mr. Sangay, 46, recalled the agitation as he watched Bostonâ€™s lead slip away, perhaps the most calamitous in a history of heartbreaks for those who persisted in believing in the Red Sox. The suffering would all be washed away by the next season, but in 2003 no one knew that. â€œNormally, I am quite a patient guy," Mr. Sangay said. "But he brought him back after 118 pitches."
