The World Series, game one

manny.jpgI was going to rewatch Donnie Darko, but the WS only happens once a year, and this year there are no Yankees. I love watching the Series when there are no Yankees involved.

I loved the late inning shot of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck all cuddled up. It looked like they were in the same seat. What a publicity pig he is. I've read that his new Christmas movie is yet another dog.

Great game. 11-9. The highest scoring game one in history. I think it would be awesome to have a World series go seven games and have all the scores be in that range.

In a way though, it seems wrong that the Sox could survive those four errors.

And for those who don't know: Manny Ramirez (the left fielder who made the the two errors in the same inning) will be paid $20,000,000 this year.

For the Beantown boys to get their Series victory, it would seem appropriate that they would have to beat the Cardinals. Were it not for those pinstripers the Birds would be far and away the most legendary franchise in history.

I was just thinking, after the Yankees, and then the Cardinals, what franchise would have the richest history going way back? The Dodgers? The Red Sox? The Giants? The Braves haven't been consistent for enough decades.

Watching this post season has been very wistful for Royals fans. Carlos Beltran, Jeff Suppan, Johnny Damon, not to mention Jose Lima, Tom Gordon and Curt Leskanic. All former Royals.

the funniest thing about manny is just how much less of an asshole he is this year. could it really been all nomar's fault?

20 mill - at least he got to the series. could you imagine dropping 7-12 more than that (depends on how you do the math) on ACod and not getting to the show?

That's the best part about the Yankees losing: ARod's contract. Not to mention Brown's and Vasquez's and all $180M of their payroll. God I hope the Astros sign Beltran. I couldn't stomach seeing him in pinstripes.
