But at least its entertaining. sortapundit October 24, 2004 I’m British, and we tend to watch baseball with an odd sort of bemused expression. I can’t tell a good game from a bad game, but at 5am on a Sunday morning that doesn’t even matter. Josh October 24, 2004 Kevin Millar allowing the Cardinals to get two runs on a throwing error – One lamp. Bronson Arroyo throwing the ball into the dugout – One lamp and a window. Manny Ramirez making two consecutive errors – One Television Set Winning the game anyway – Priceless. There are some things vandalism cannot avenge. For everything else, there is victory. Brian October 24, 2004 St Louis in six. Boston will win Game 2 and then get swept. Chad Evans October 24, 2004 Sortapundit, the British aren’t the only ones who watch baseball with a “bemused expression.” Personally I love the game and love October for this reason. As far as tonight’s game goes, I’m rooting for the Cardinals because as a Cubs fan, I don’t want any other team’s curse removed before the Curse of the Billygoat. Willis Cheng October 24, 2004 To tell you the truth, I have decided who I want to win… TC-LeatherPenguin October 24, 2004 You’re all English. Go whack a wicket. Uncle Mikey October 24, 2004 “World series, F*%k yeah, comin’ again to entertain the f%&$in’ world” Damn I can’t get that song out of my head tony October 24, 2004 I’m fairly neutral (though the only good thing I can think of coming from a Red Sox win is that the fans will shut up about being ‘cursed’), I can’t help thinking that: A) The whole All-Star game homefield advantage bonus is the worst idea in the history of just about anything. Even when home field rotated back and forth between leagues it was pretty shitty, but to say that the Cards can kick the snot out of the NL all year, then they have to give up home field to the AL wild card team just because of an exhibition game in July is bogus. (Though at least its not the WNBA where they play full series until the finals where it becomes a one game winner take all.) and B) Any team that has a foul pole less than 320 feet from home plate doesn’t deserve to be in the playoffs. ken October 24, 2004 living outside of Boston it’s been good entertainment watching the Red Sox not win it all over the years. I just want my Fox TV shows back and for people to start to talk about the important things… like the Patriots. firstbrokenangel October 25, 2004 TC – you’re funny – go swing a cricket. Love it. Sox will win in 7 if not less. But they have got to stop being butterfingers. Maybe once they get to St Louis where it’s 70 degrees, they can play like they play in the summer. Cardinals are afraid of Ortiz, they keep walking him so he won’t hit a home run. Once they are on home ground, I hope the Sox wipe them with a full loss; they deserve it – our homeboys. 🙂 ~Cindy PS Haven’t missed a game, and I won’t till it’s over. GO SOX!!!!!
