The World Baseball Classic came down to a perfect ending that not even writers in Hollywood could have come up with - the great Shohei Ohtani on the mound facing his Angels teammate, the great Mike Trout, in a one-run game with two outs in the ninth.
It was glorious. It was fascinating. It had everyone on the edge of their seat.
And in the end it had Ohtani throwing his hat and glove in celebration after getting Trout to swing and miss on a 3-2 pitch to give Japan a 3-2 win over Team USA.
You know what else was pretty awesome? The Japanese TV call of that final strike and celebration:
Just an electric way to start your day.
