Wild World of Wednesday - October 29, 2008



MLB: The World Series is quite wild this year. There hasn't been a rain delay like this in recent memory and the very rules of baseball are being questioned. Phillies fans are coming out of their skin and Rays fans are holding their breath. The game restarts in the bottom of the 6th inning with the Phillies coming up to bat and a 2-2 tie. Whatever happens with this will be blamed for winning or losing I'm sure.

And by the way - Frank McCourt is still waffling instead of signing Manny Ramirez. How ridiculous is that? How many times to I have to complain about this? How much longer must I listen to everyone complain on sports radio? Let me guess, he's trying to poll exactly how many of us will actually stop going to the game or be fed up enough to stop buying merchandise? With record crowds and a huge television contract there must be enough money for him and several other stars. How about NOT building that unnecessary mall at the stadium if you're so strapped for cash?

NFL: If you look outside you'll see animals that previously had no wings in the air and flying. Yes, the Tennessee Titans are 7-0. Who would have bet on that? This is just the continuation of a very wild year in the NFL. No one is laughing at my choice of the Titans defense for my fantasy football team anymore...except me...
