Thread: World Series

  1. #1

    Default World Series

    So who's following?

    Baseball isn't really an interest of mine, but with two teams that had a reputation of being so bad long term getting into the series makes it somewhat interesting.

    The Philies won the first game on the road.

    Thoughts? Predictions? Trash-talk?

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I am not big on trash-talk (at least, I am not if I am not playing), but I think the Phillies take Game 2 tonight, as well, and win the Series in 5 or 6.

    Don't care about either team. I'll go for TB though I doubt I'll watch any of the games.

    Phillies in 6 as AL fans boast about AL superiority.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I would actually LOVE for the phillies to win. I don't think I can stomach a national case of fair weather fans for THREE teams in the AL East. Seriously. Can you imagine that, you think its bad now. It would be absolutely insufferable, sports coverage would revolve around the east in baseball, especially the American league.

    Honestly, the National league will be even more ridiculed if the rays win. Think about it, last to first, Blue jays are a decent team, orioles aren't pushovers for a last place team, the Big two. It would just serve as a microcosm of the American League, every argument about the NL's inferiority will stem from that division if they win, that is something you can QUOTE me on.

    What a ridiculously beautiful game. I am very, very pumped for Games 4 and 5.

    A great game. The kind of game that championship teams pull out at least once during their run. I loved watching Moyer get to pitch well in the World Series in his hometown. I think they've got some mojo going, especially with Howard finally getting off. You've got to feel great about having a Game 5 ticket right now!

    You know what I wouldn't even mind eating crow about Moyer right now. Yes I dislike the devil rays that much.
