MLB world series 2008

Hey there world wide webbers, it is your online friend, Dan! Well it is time to talk about one of the most interesting things to happen this year. The bail out? Yeah, that was interesting, but that’s not it. The election? Yes, and I do expect an Obama knock out (Mike Tyson style). But no, I am talking, of course, about the World Series match up of the Tampa Bay Rays Vs. the Philadelphia Phillies. Now I have no interest personally in this series, but I am exstatic to announce that the Boston red sox will have no part in this year’s match up. My beloved Yankees are gone, as well as THAT team (for those of you who don’t get the reference, I mean the M*ts). However, I am intrigued by this unlikely pairing. We have Tampa Bay, who couldn’t sell out if they were giving the tickets away for free, and the Phillies, who are talented but represent one of the smaller big markets. Both teams are qualified to be there, and I think that I will rather enjoy this unlikely series.
I am sad to report that this will be the start of a dark time in my life. As some of you might or might not know, baseball is my favorite sport. Everything else pales in comparison to my love for our American past time. Therefore, I expect the sun not to shine between the end of October and the beginning of March.
I am still in mourning over the loss of a good friend of mine. I’m talking, obviously, of Yankee stadium. After doing much thinking about the matter, I have come to the conclusion that the events that led to the destruction of a historical landmark were out of my control and all I can do now is look forward to a new season of baseball in the BX (Bronx New York).
Bottom line: whoever wins the world series will be very lucky: it would be the first for the Rays and only the second for the Phillies. That’s great, but remind me how many do the Yankees have?
Oh yes, that’s right, more than any other franchise in any sport in the history of the universe! I think our legacy will be in place regardless to the disappointment of this season. So, until next time, take care.
(I would like to say hi to my friend DJ (Derik Jeter) who I am hoping is a frequent reader of my blog)
