I started watching the playoffs in the 5th inning of game 4. I figured I would watch it all end that game and grumble about the Red Sox blowing it again. Then something happened that was quite unexpected. It turned into a real game. A good game! I drove home listening to the 11th inning on my XM radio and then watched them win it in the 12th. Cool!
Then I was hooked. For the next 3 nights, I drove home listening to the game on XM and then watching them somehow pull it out. Man, that was fun! I love an underdog story, but it is much better when it is the Sox beating the Yankees!
Now I have to watch all of the World Series games.
I was hoping that the Astros would make it into the World Series as well, then it would be a big metaphor for the presidential election. That means, of course, that the Cardinals will win game 7 tonight.
