Yep, that pretty much sums up my feelings about the World Series so far. I really don’t care. I admit that I haven’t even watched any of it, other than any highlights that happened to be shown on my local news coverage. Following the LCS and WS games in the newspaper would have been difficult, as well, since all but one or two games have “ended too late for this edition.” Reading about it the day after the day after just isn’t the same.

Apparently the Inquirer’s editors have as much enthusiasm for it as I do. 😉

That being said, if I absolutely had to choose a favorite or be threatened with bodily harm, I suppose I’d go with Texas. Why, you ask? Well, a few reasons:

  • Texas has never won a World Series; St. Louis has won 10 (OK, not exactly a Yankee-like  number, but still more than every other team that is not the Yankees).
  • Prior to last year, the Rangers had never even been to the WS; this year marks the Cardinals’ 18th visit to the Fall Classic.
  • I know people who live in Texas; I don’t know anyone in St. Louis (or even all of Missouri, for that matter).
  • Tony LaRussa and his micromanaging ways really annoy me.
  • Joe Buck really, really annoys me, and even though he was actually born in Florida, he’s basically from St. Louis.
  • A Wild Card team should not win the World Series. It just shouldn’t.

Currently up 3 games to 2, Texas could win it all tonight. I’ll try to muster a little interest, and perhaps sneak a peek at the game. Or not.

    I’m with you on the Wild Card team not winning, but I don’t really care either way. I just hope they go to a Game 7 and it’s a very competitive, exciting finish.

    That was some game 6 Sue! I hope you did watch that one! I have good friends in St Louis or around it. They are all big Cardinal fans and the nicest and most hospitable when I visit there back in 2006 and also when we met again in 2008 in Florida for Spring Training. Now that it has gone to game 7th, I say “may the best team win!” I just want a good game played. Is probably not going to be as good as game 6th but still I want a good baseball game.

      Emma, I only got to see the 9th inning of that game! We got home late from a Flyers game (which was exciting in itself, even though they lost 9-8, there was an awful lot of scoring for a hockey game), watched the ninth inning, and since it was almost midnight and it was going to extra innings, turned the TV off. Will have to try to catch a bit more of tonight’s game. 🙂
