Local man hatches scheme to convince coworkers he didn’t fall asleep during big game

While many sports fans around the world were witnessing one of the most exciting Major League Baseball games in modern history, a local Houston man succumbed to one of his most primal urges.

The Houston Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-12 in Game 5 of the World Series, a 10-inning thriller that lasted over five hours. The win gives the Astros a 3-2 lead in the best of seven World Series, and has the city of Houston buzzing over the possibility of their first major championship in 22 years.

However, not every Astros fan was joining in on the celebration, on Sunday night.

Mark Whitman, a Houston native, and loyal Astros fan admitted that he dozed off “sometime during the fifth inning with Los Angeles leading 7-4. I had worked a double shift at the packing plant on Saturday. So I was tired.” Whitman stated.

It was when he returned to his job on Monday morning, that he discovered a major problem.

“As soon as I walked in the door to our employee break room, I was met with high fives from coworkers, and my boss Don made the comment that  ‘he would fire anyone who dared to fall asleep during that game’. I had to come up with a plan, and I had to do it quickly.”

Whitman immediately excused himself from the room, and found a newspaper where he read the sports section to find out what had happened the night before. “I knew that I didn’t have much time to study the box-score, but I had to memorize as much information as I could.”

“When I returned to the break room, I was ready. My coworker Jeff said that he thought the game was over in the 5th inning when (Dodgers first baseman) Cody Bellinger hit that three run home run.”

Whitman was quick to retort “I thought it was over when (Astros shortstop) Carlos Correa homered to left field, for a 328 foot home run!”

Whitman had made a narrow escape. Yes, his statement of the length of the home run was an amateur mistake, but his coworker Jeff was too excited to notice. He high-fived Whitman, and the two shared a special bonding moment.

“I survived.” Whitman said. “It was a white knuckle ride, but I made it.”
