Waiting for Hump Day

Fine.  It’s okay.  No, really.

It is your right to not be excited about this series because it involves bullies and brawlers, overpaid free agents and neanderthals, pinstripes and… er… pinstripes.  But, as a baseball fan, it is hard for me to find a reason (other than everything else we here at RSBS have ever alluded to — ever) to not look forward to this World Series match-up between Philadelphia and New York.

I mean, we are getting the two best teams in Major League Baseball to play each other in the final series, are we not?

And let’s face it: when the crown of baseball fandom rests upon the head of someone with the mental (and carnal) acumen of this fella in the background…

… well, let’s just say that a whole new field of dreams is possible.

Is it Wednesday yet?

Hate me ‘cuz I jump on the buzz train, just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    I saw this clip the other day on one of my Facebook friends links.
    The best part of it all is that the studio anchor gave the guy up. But the real pun was that this was a night when most of the city was not even celebrating at full force.
    Think how bad it would have been if they crowd had really gotten “motivated” by their beverages of choice before the “live” shoot.

    How about this reason: No matter what, 10 million Yankee fans will be in everyone’s face, either bragging or complaining incessantly. Which is worse?

    RR — I bet the beverage of choice wasn’t milk.
    Prince — I don’t know personally, but I ain’t gonna argue with the Boss.
    Elizabeth — Yep. Pretty much says it. I won’t not watch it either.
    Julia — Hm. I tend to think there will be a lot of exciting moments, though it’d be nice to hear “Who’s your daddy?” chants again. Been a while.
    xcicix — Equally awful. Bound to happen.

    Jealousy? What are you talking about? Of what do you speak, cheshirecat9? There is no hint of jealousy here. I’m a baseball fan, first and foremost, and like I said: “we are getting the two best teams in Major League Baseball to play each other in the final series”. Yankees fans are always so quick to want to start a fight (see your comment); that’s where they get the “bully” moniker. It’s there ‘cuz it’s true.

    Okay fair enough. Truth is I am bored at work and excited for the game tonight so I thought I would try and start some trouble. However I have no wish to reinforce negative sterotypes of Yankee fans, so I withdraw my jealousy comment. I stand by the “Haters” though. I am sure this series will be exciting and entertaining. (Although of course I am hoping for a blow-out 4 game sweep)

    Jeff, I hear you about the old school YH’ers. I was in the midst of one when you popped in. Musta just missed it. : )


  7. redstatebluestate

    Buz — Haha. That’s something not all reporters can say I’m sure.
    Cheshirecat9 — I totally get it. I get bored at work too. I think we’ll be in for some good games. I prefer close ones if my guys aren’t involved, but I know where you’re coming from. Good luck and thanks for droppin’ by.
