    Doesn't baseball start in the spring?

    I don't follow any of that. Turn on a game and I'm asleep in 5 mins. I'd rather watch the grass grow or paint dry.... or hell my firewood season!

    The Mets have shown me more ways to lose than I even knew existed.

    Been in a hotel with my wife and a couple of in-laws for a couple of days. All Three from Texas. Night before last I was afraid I was going to get a bill for a big screen TV. I was afraid it was going to get smashed.

    :lol: Yeah, a lot of folks really take it personally. Sometimes to the point of senseless violence. I don't quite grasp that sort of fanaticism about a retail franchise that's just in business to make a profit. It's not like any of the team members are actually FROM the team's hometown. Nor does the outcome of a game mean diddley about either team's hometown or state. I enjoy watching a well-played sport contest, but I really couldn't care less about who wins & who loses. Most typically I'll find myself rooting for the underdog or whoever's behind in score at the time...just hoping they'll make an interesting close game of it. Rick

    As a lifelong baseball fan, I just find myself rooting for a 7 game series.
    I'm kinda torn as who to root for. I'm an AL fan.
    My late father was a Cardinal fan & in 1960, the first game he
    took me to see was when he was stationed at Edwards AFB
    & we went to the LA Colisseum to see the Cards at the Dodgers.
    BIG names on the field that day...
    Cards:Stan Musial. Bill White. Ken Boyer. Curt Flood. Julian Javier. Bob Gibson
    Dodgers: Wally Moon. Maury Wills. Frank Howard. Duke Snider. Gil Hodges. Don Drysdale
    They actually strung a chain link fence across the middle of the field - in right -
    to bring the monstrous Colisseum dimensions down to baseball park size...
    As an 8-year-old, it was my BEST ever birthday present...

    We are fans. My dad took the family to Cardinal games. Many the cool evening we sat on the porch in the dark listening to the radio while Harry Carey and Dizzy Dean told stories. I have done the same with my family. It is another family memory and more glue for our lives.

    The older son is working in Alabama. Last week he called up and said, "Hey, I'm going to the second game of the series. That's great I said. Who coming with. He said I got four tickets and you guys are going to meet me there. So we did. He wouldn't let me pay. The Cards lost, but the byline was I spilled my beer on the gentleman in the seat in front of me. Talk about embarrassing. The guy was cool.

    Watching the game right now, I'm an AL fan but Texas whopped on my team so I want Texas to lose two seasons in a row. ;-) Honestly I could care less who wins as long as I get to watch some good games, so far it has been a good series.

    Is it bad that I get sad during the World Series since I know baseball will be gone till spring!? Sports take up such a huge amount of my time its not even funny! :lol:

    Quit watching people hit balls with sticks and go chop some wood. Of all the sports to watch, baseball is one of the least entertaining. I'd rather watch a sitcom and at least get a laugh.

    This has been such a nailbiter playoffs so far, so I don't think it will disappoint. I hope the W goes to the home team. GO CARDS!
