So now that our World Series matchup is in place, we see that, combined, the Angels and Giants franchises have gone 99 years with a world championship. Aw, Jeez, they’re getting spoiled.
I mean the Yankees only won four in the last six years and 26 total. Poor Yankees fans. Poor, poor Yankees fans. Lucky us. I look forward to a fantastic World Series.
I was very happy to see David Bell sliding into home tonight on Kenny Lofton’s bottom-of-the-ninth single, and will be rooting hard for Barry and the Giants. But it couldn’t come close to my mania at seeing ex-Cub Mark Grace and the D-Backs beat Mariano Rivera and the Yankees in the ninth inning of the seventh game of last year’s Series.
