The Year in Video Highlights, Part 4: October

Hey there and welcome to the final edition of my stroll down video lane: October. This was a weird one to do since there were only 5 games we want to remember, and every run and every out was so significant that there was no way to pare 'em down. So, I present it all to you more as a handy reference, without my silly commentary, because you remember it all so well anyway.

I'm only doing the 5 games we won in October, because this whole thing is supposed to make us all feel good... for anyone who really wants to re-live how the rest of our playoffs went, just go here.
