Are We Having Fun Yet?


Apparently not. The Wife says to me last night. “This is the worst playoffs ever.”

The games have been close, it’s been exciting. She just means the wrong teams keep winning.

I just had a similiar conversation with a Red Sock fan in my office.
He comes over and says, "Are you watching these games? Aren't they great? Every pitch is exciting."
I admitted I'm too much of a hater to appreciate the baseball.
Another grumpy Yanks fan told him, "Tell them to cut their beards and I'll watch."

Yeah, I've got a lot of petty bitterness going myself.

Who are her "right" teams? I'm not sure I could guess which ones you guys would want, other than "Not Boston."

3) Well, more than anyone the Pirates. And Indians and then the Rays and A's.

Now, it's the Dodgers and the Tigers.

If the A's had won, we could have had the Williamsburg vs. Park Slope ALCS.

The games have been great, but I just cannot stomach these BoSox beards much longer. They seriously skeeve me out.

6) I have a gay friend who loves the Sox just because of their beards. Says they look like the guys that hang in his favorite bars. Just saying. At least some people dig their look.

My only interest left is hoping somehow Donnie Baseball finally gets a world series ring. That I would stay up to watch. The rest - meh. I don't like either AL team left - Cabrera and Fielder are unlikable guys to me - and the BoSox 'nuff said.

[5] Amen. They look ridiculous. Does little Dusty Pedroia think it makes him look bigger? Maybe it helps the laser show.

[6] Not that there is anything wrong with that.
