The Fall Classic

October 24, 2012

The World Series is finally here but without the Dodgers taking part in it, I have a hard time staying interested.  As a baseball fan, I will occasionally watch part of it, but it is not like it was in 1963 when I had to fake being sick so I could stay home and be glued to a black and white TV.  Back then, it was about the only way to catch a glimpse of Dodger Stadium.  The only regular games on TV were against the Giants at Candlestick Park.

…and then there were four.

The Dodgers have been rivals with both teams battling it out for the National League pennant.  For that reason, a lot of here for rooting for the Reds and Nats.  But baseball is a funny game.  Just when you are jubilant because your team is up by two in the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs, the opponent snatches victory from the jaws of defeat.

Both the Giants and Cardinals showed True Grit by the way they grinded their way back from a probable loss and elimination.  The team with the best record in the majors, the Washington Nationals, were snuffed out by the team that won 10 games fewer than Nats, the Cardinals, who barely made the playoffs by winning the number two wild card spot.

In the American League, the teams that were favored to win back in Spring Training, the Tigers and Yankees, did not disappoint the prognosticators.

May the best teams win.
