The Rays?

October 20th, 2008

I realize this morning that my attempt at congratulating my Red Sox fan friends (I can name only a couple off the top my head, anyway) last year has had a desired effect for at least this year: Boston is not going to the World Series this time around.

But I don’t know if I don’t feel worse at the thought that the Rays may be wearing the crown in several days’ time. At least, with the Sox, it was a respectably storied franchise that beat – or did better than – my Yankees. But a team who’s never even had a winning record before now possibly winning it all is hard to stomach when balanced against the Yanks’ recent postseason ineptitude.

Well, Philadelphia is practically in New Jersey. Go Phillies, then!

    Having spent four years in Philadelphia for college, and keeping in contact with many of my fellow University of Pennsylvania alums, I’m (virtually) surrounded by Phillies fans all the time, so I guess I’m rooting for them.

    Mostly, though, as is always the case when the Yankees don’t make the series, what I’m really rooting for is Spring Training (only ~18 weeks ’till pitchers & catchers report!!!)

    I haven’t seen a single baseball game since last summer, so my rooting interests have been fairly abstract, postseason or not :(
