If you’re just now waking up and wondering what exactly happened in Game 3 of the World Series,  you’re not alone. After seven hours, 20 minutes and 18 innings there’s quite a bit to unpack. The short version is that the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Boston Red Sox, 3-2,  giving LA a chance at evening the series at two apiece in Game 4 on Saturday night.

Yet not everyone has fully recovered from the marathon that was Game 3. The Internet certainly hasn’t. It’s now become a place divided by those who witnessed each glorious inning and those are still piecing together how it stretched on for so long.

Here’s a snapshot of Baseball Twitter following the longest game in World Series history:


















And that’s barely scratching the surface of the levels of madness that took place in Los Angeles on Friday night. There’s still Ian Kinsler’s stomach-turning error in the 13th inning, Jackie Bradley Jr. launching a home run off Kenley Jansen in the eighth inning to tie the game and Walker Buehler’s wizardry on the mound in his World Series start. 

All of it led to an instant classic of a ballgame that would be thrilling to rewatch if doing so didn’t take longer than a flight from New York to London.

Thankfully, it doesn’t seem like the Internet will be forgetting about this game anytime soon.
