How many did I miss?

As an exorcise in exorcism, how many worse games can you remember?

I was at the game in Cleveland on the 4th of July 2006. 

Shawn Chacon made the start.  I bought a scorecard when we arrived in the 1st inning.

The game started on a Yankee-centric note- Damon reached on an error by Aaron Boone, then went first to third on a Jeter single.  Giambi ground into a double play, but the run scored.  Then Chacon took the mound and ruined my scorecard.  He allowed 4 runs in the bottom of the 1st and 3 more in the 2nd.  

Ron Villone came in and put out the fire for 2.2IP.  And then there was TJ Beam and Mike Myers in the 5th- the Indians hung a nine spot.  By the end of fifth the Indians used up the 6th inning column.  By the time the 19-1 final was posted I was drawing in boxes at the end of the scorecard.

What was the worst game you ever witnessed?
