I guess the WAR in London isnít over.
If today's score is 20-18, then yes, an asterisk is needed. But if it's more like 3-2, then yesterday's game was an aberration. They said the artificial turf was hard, and the heat wave they are having caused the air to be quite moist, so there were factors.

Also, at 4 hours 42 minutes, one of the two or three longest nine inning games ever played.
