Everyone must know by now, that the World Series begins on Saturday in Chicago. The Chicago White Sox will play the Houston Astros at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago. So do you care? Will you be watching?
You have two teams hungry for a World Series title. White Sox have a good team, with a bad history, loaded with scandal (1919 Black Sox Scandal). Can't believe thay still get a bad rap for something that happened so long ago. As Buck Weaver said at the end of "Eight Men Out". All those players are dead now. I even saw signs calling "White Sox Cheaters", during playoff broadcasts. I realize that fans can get ugly at times.
I usually watch the World Series myself. Usually when the playoffs begin, and my "Cubs" are out of it, I pick a team, and stick with it to the end, if they make it that far. This year I am delighted that our "other Chicago Baseball team has made it to the "Fall Classic".
Now don't tell me I can't be both a Cubs and Sox fan. My brother tried that for years. Chicago is a great city. It is so good to see it being represented this year. Yankees and Cardinals and Los Angeles, to name a few have had more than their fair share.
I apologize. This thread is coming off confrontational.
So are you going to watch the World Series? Do you care? Have you ever been to a World Series?
Baseball season still going strong at my place.
