Another Take on the World Series

2009 Series logo.gifSo, here we go. The Yankees and the Phillies. New York and Philadelphia. The poorest borough of NYC versus the most wannabe borough of NYC. Should be quite a series.

Oh, you noticed that? You noticed that I really don’t seem all that excited? Hm, perhaps that’s because I’m not. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the inevitability of it all. Maybe it’s the East Coastness of it all. Maybe it’s the jackwits who are eating this up right now. Whatever it is, it just leaves me a little cold.

I think it has a little to do with the Yankees spending more than a billion dollars over the past five years to get to this point. You’d like to think that money can’t buy you championships but the Yankees are set to prove that one wrong. It definitely has something to do with the Tigers losing that playoff. And even though Jeff is right in saying that baseball is baseball is baseball, I just can’t get myself to be all that excited.

But, on the bright side, at least Dane Cook is dead and won’t ruin any more of those World Series ads. Oh, really? He’s still alive? Hm, I guess I just assumed he was dead. Sorry about that. My bad.

Allen – One of your funniest post this year…. You know it’s okay to be jealous of those teams that made it this far…. I hear that they have some good property prices in the Detroit area should you want a closer domicile to your beloved underspending team….:-)

Do I want to see the Yankees win? No. Do I want to see the Phillies win? Not really. Is it time for Spring Training yet? ;-)

You’re in the same boat as so many other people right now. Gone and done with it as soon as they’re teams are out. Ya can’t blame ya or anyone else. Your team is you team and that’s where your passions lie. It’s all good.
