Get excited America! Your favorite pastime is ready to bring you it's fall classic starting tonight. And lucky for you it features the rivalry that we've all been waiting for, the Rangers versus the Giants! There is nothing NOTHING more exciting than seeing two franchises lock horns that have a grand total of zero world championshps since 1958. One team is best known for their roided out left fielder who retired 3 years ago, the other is best known for being in the same state as the Cowboys. You can't script this stuff out!
Legit question: If there were only two stations on the air tonight and one had Rangers/Giants World Series game 1 and the other was airing a 4 hour marathon of the best Seinfeld episodes and you could only choose ONE station to watch, which would win the ratings war? My guess is Seinfeld wins 100 times out of 100. I suppose it sort of depends on the Seinfeld episodes in a way. I mean I think if I see "The Statue" episode where the guy cleaning Jerry's apartment steals George's replacement statue one more time I might lose it. I mean I'll watch it everytime it's on, but I won't be happy about it. But if we're talking like Van Buren Boys, Soup Nazi, Marine Biologist here, then Bud Selig is going to have some issues.
In any case I'll be tuning in for Game 1, but to be honest if MLB loses me they KNOW they are in a downward spiral. Me not tuning into the World Series would be like Charlie Sheen not wandering around a hotel naked while a prostitute with cocaine awaits his return. You gotta be you right? That plus after watching Brewers pitching all season I'll be happy to see what acutal staff aces look like when Linceum and Lee duel tonight. You know how some people watch 'Cribs' to see how rich people live? Well that's like me tuning in to playoff baseball. I want to see how real teams with real pitching live.
PS: Am I the only one not shocked by Sheen's recent meltdown? Like while I was show prepping this morning (read: changing my fantasy football rosters) I saw that this Sheen story was trending on almost every website. Wandering drunk and naked around a hotel while calling prostitute's and scoring drugs? Sounds like a Tuesday in Sheen's world to me. I mean this is Rick Vaughn we're talking about! You think the "Wild Thing" nickname earns itself? Pfffft.
