Congratulations to the Phillies. I was kinda hoping the Phillies would win because they have Matt Stairs. However, Tampa Bay surprised a lot of people by doing what they did.

So, here it is almost November and baseball has finally ended. Now it's hockey until June.....

I also thought the umpiring was pretty bad for a World Series..Bad for both teams.

Congratulations Holly - YAY PHILLIES!!!!!!!!!!!

I was going to comment that my Vikings were going to kick your Eagles butt - but looking at the schedule, there's no Eagles-Viks match-up this season. Oh well. So, with that... YAY PHILLIES once again!!!

Yay Phillies!

I know zilch about baseball, but it sounds like they were a deserving team. Plus Philadelphia has great steak!

It was quite a celebration last night...the streets were packed throughout the city and my little neighborhood was no exception! They actually brought in a big, yellow, school bus full of cops! LOL! The college kids had a body surfing fest going on outside of pitchers pub. I think my favorite was the firehouse on main street: they had the lights all flashing, horns honking, buff, fire-fighters on top of the truck waving phillies flags in tight t-shirts...fortunately these were the young ones, not the 50+ year old who tried to stick his tongue down my throat at the local pub a couple of months ago.

Can't blame a guy for trying

OK, sorry Holly.....I'm just not following here.......what game do you guys in Philly play again? B-a-s-e-b-a-l-l? Hmmm, never heard of it. It's just not clicking here....I know that Chicago has 2 really awful teams that think they play baseball, but really, I don't think they put much effort into it.....

Seriously, congrats to the Phils. It's been awhile...long enough. Someday, I know the Cubbies are actually going to hire professional baseball players and make a go of it.....

Now, about those Eagles....looks like we (Bears) won't be meeting this year....though, the playoffs could be interesting....

The Vikings haven't kicked anyone's butt since Hagar the Horrible and his Band of Merry Men invaded Merry old England about 77AD and they chased the wenches across the moors. Didn't catch 'em either but they did kick the butts of some very old sheep.

As for kicking Eagles butts, well, first ya gotta find an Eagle. They nest waaaay high in trees and in the mountains. Wouldn't advise trying to catch an Eagle, though. They have really sharp fingernails and they bite.

As for the Cubbies......WAAAAHAAAWAAAHAAAA.......Sorry, :(couldn't stop myself......See, I'm a Toronto Blue Jay fan. Yep. Been disappointed over and over. They finish some 7 games over .500 and they finish fourth. Behind the Yankees. I don't like the Yankees. I keep hoping, year after year after year. Well, it's not 100 years like some OTHER team that finished first and lost in the playoffs.....But, at least they GOT to the playoffs...However it's 15 years and counting. I am thinking of becoming a Lansing Lugnut fan......

Ah, Dear... I think a correction is needed here... Just a thought... Something about a night in September and "holding the line"...

Thems there are fightin' words!!!! Actually, the Viks are very good a kicking their own butt though they did have one hell of a game against the Bears a couple of weeks ago.
